About Westminster Short Life Housing
Westminster Short Life Housing (WSLH) was formed in 1982
by a coalition of London-based housing activists, who identified a need
for a major provider of short-life housing. We continue to work to find
solutions to the problems of the single homeless and those who are in housing
need, who don't qualify for statutory assistance, and who can't afford
private-sector rents. We have about 400 licensees
in properties right across the London area. We emphasise that we are a
self-help group, and are democratically membership-run, through a system
of committees and Annual and Special General meetings.
We employ 6 paid workers to run the office on a
day-to-day basis, with the help of volunteers drwan from the membership.
The organisation has a highly-experienced core membership, and has been
going for twelve years, it's origins being in West London. We are self-financing
and have no affiliation to any political parties. We operate a strict equal
opportunities policy and are opposed to all forms of prejudice and discrimination.
