Justice for THCH Residents started this petition to Chief Executive of Tower Hamlets Community Housing

Tower Hamlets Community Housing (THCH) has increased service charges by up to 100% for its residents, both tenants and leaseholders. These includes increases for exampe of £1200 (total of now £2200 for 2021, from £1000 in 2020).

No other housing associations in London seems have made increases by this amount. The increases will punish the most vunerable and poorest sections of the community that live in social housing. The economic and human consequences of the COVID pandemic have already affected many people. The increases will throw more people into distress and debt at a time of economic and human devastation. It will generate greater inequality and poverty, especially amongst BAME communities. 

There is no reason for these increases as THCH has £106 million in financial reserves for 2020. Most of the financial cost should not be absorbed by the poorest in society who are now suffering more than ever, and are losing there jobs and livelihoods. 

We demand that THCH withdraws the service charge increases.
