Camden Federation of Private Tenants (CFPT) provides a voice for private tenants in Camden. Run by and for private tenants, we were set up in 1980 as a mutual support group to help tenants organise and campaign for their rights.
We aim to enable private tenants to improve their housing conditions. To do this 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, push for improvements in housing conditions and for stronger legal rights.
CFPT works with local, regional and national groups/organisations to lobby and promote private tenants’ rights. We put pressure on councillors, committees and departments of the council to get things done. We provide a wide variety of information on all 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 organise meetings, events and conferences (funding permitting) on private tenant issues with expert housing advice workers, Environmental Health Officers and solicitors. 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.
