"The Trussell Trust supports a network of food banks across the UK and together we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

Food banks in our network see every day the impact that the costs and insecurity of renting have on the ability of people to afford the essentials. There are significant overlaps between experiences of eviction and homelessness and need for emergency food. That is why we are proud to be a partner in the Renters’ Reform Coalition, to reform the private rented sector so that everyone who relies on it for their home can prosper."

“We are pleased to support the coalition’s campaign, and will be raising awareness of key issues facing survivors of domestic abuse in the private rented sector. The coalition’s vital principles of stability and affordability, safety and a just housing system are particularly crucial for survivors of domestic abuse, and the Renters' Reform Bill must deliver systemic changes in this regard.”

"akt supports LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 in the UK who are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment. Growing numbers of LGBTQ+ young people renting in the private rented sector are vulnerable to experiencing homelessness or finding themselves without a home again. If we are to end homelessness and housing insecurity, urgent reform of the private sector is needed. More work also needs to be done to ensure that the private rented sector is inclusive of LGBTQ+ people. This is why akt is proud to partner with the Renters' Reform Coalition."

"The Big Issue is supporting the Renters' Reform Coalition as part of our campaign to Stop Mass Homelessness. No one should face an unfair eviction, yet we know that cases are hitting the courts at alarming rates. The upcoming reform needs to work for renters and have homelessness prevention at its heart. We must keep people in their homes at all costs."

"The Housing Law Practitioners Association is a forum for all those who practice housing law for the benefit of the homeless, tenants and other occupiers of housing. The system does not work for our clients. Private tenancies do not provide the security needed for a stable life, especially for vulnerable tenants or those with children. Social housing and homeownership are for the few. S21 proceedings are rife with technical defences, but these are a delaying tactic in most cases. Due to advice deserts or lack of eligibility, many tenants cannot access legal aid to defend possession proceedings. HLPA supports the Renters' Reform Coalition to create a workable, stable system which treats houses as homes, not merely assets.”

“With a growing number of StepChange advice clients living in rented housing, we see first-hand the harm that insecure housing and the fear of eviction has on people struggling with problem debt. That’s why we are delighted to partner with the RRC and campaign with them for much-needed reform of the private rented sector."

"We support the Renters' Reform Coalition because every older person deserves a safe place to grow old. An often forgotten and overlooked group, a significant number of older private renters are particularly vulnerable. High rents leave one in three older renters in poverty after the rent is paid and they are less likely to have savings to fall back on. Older renters are more likely than older home owners to be unwell. Almost a quarter of a million older renters, nearly three in ten, do not live in decent housing. At Age UK we believe that older private renters deserve more security, particularly as their numbers are forecast to grow. That’s why we’re calling for changes to security of tenure for all renters, including an end to Section 21 or ‘no-fault’ evictions.”
