A group of young mothers from the Focus E15 Mothers campaign group have squatted a block of a boarded-up council estate in Newham, London.
The women were evicted from the Focus E15 hostel last year after the government and Newham borough council slashed the money that paid for their support.  They were initially threatened with being housed up to 200 miles away in parts of the country that they had no links in, but after a campaign, the council helped them to find affordable private accommodation.  With their rental contracts only being for 12 months though, and rents rising, many of the women and their children face the possibility of being homeless again.
The Carpenter’s estate, where they are occupying a block, has been partially empty and boarded up for several years, a disgusting state of affairs when so many people in London are homeless and vulnerably housed.
