Oppose plans to criminalise squatting - take action now
Four out of ten of single homeless people have squatted at some point, so Government plans to criminalise squatting risk hitting the most vulnerable.
Of course homeowners have to be protected and current laws should be enforced. But plans to criminalise people squatting in derelict buildings would penalise many who have no other option. Crisis thinks that ministers need to focus on the root causes of homelessness, not its consequences.
Please contact your MP and ask them to sign EDM 2114 to ensure homeless people are not unfairly penalised by plans to change the law on squatting.

Government plans are badly thought through and risk harming the most vulnerable without doing anything to tackle the reasons homeless people squat. Homeless people need support, not criminalisation. Help us campaign against these damaging changes.
Don't let ministers criminalise homeless people
