Camden Federation of Private Tenants (CFPT) is funded by the local authority to provide a voice for private tenants in the London Borough of Camden. Run by and for private tenants, we were set up in 1980 as a mutual support group to help this group of residents come together to organise and campaign for their rights and improve their housing conditions.
We publicise the problems of Camden’s private tenants by raising issues, promoting solutions and lobbying for stronger rights. We encourage better and more responsive Council services for private tenants, continually push for improvements in housing conditions and for stronger legal rights.
CFPT works with local, regional and national groups and organisations to lobby and campaign for improvements in the private rented sector (PRS).
We also work with councillors, committees and the relevant teams at Camden Council to make sure they use all of the resources and powers available to them to help improve things for tenants as much as possible.
We produce and distribute a wide variety of information both online and via traditional communication channels on the range of issues that affect tenants.
CFPT is not a funded advice agency. However, we do empower and support tenants to solve their individual problems and refer people to other services, organisations and advice agencies where appropriate.
We also organise meetings, events, information stalls on the issues relevant to tenants. Our varied membership also acts as a consultative body for local, regional and national tenant issues.
Accessible to all
Our organisation is committed to being open and accessible to all private tenants regardless of race, ethnic origin, nationality, religious belief, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, trade union activity, HIV or AIDS.
Our office is on the ground floor and fully wheelchair accessible.
