Local Campaign Materials

It is crucial that tenants hear both sides of the debate. The council will give tenants the hard sell promoting privatisation. DCH can help you produce a local campaign newspaper or leaflet that combines specific information relating to the financial position of council housing in your area, the views of local tenants, councillors and unions and some of the key arguments and background information. Below are some examples of material that local campaigns have produced. If your council is pushing transfer, PFI or ALMO get in touch.
