CIN-NEF housing campaign check sheet
Aim: To raise awareness about the housing crisis and to propose some solutions both at national and local level.
Action: Approach media and key individuals with proposals – run campaigns if possible.
Select any action you think you can do. Better to do one thing properly than do nothing. Hopefully we can have a leaflet ready by the end of March.
