We are delighted to announce that our chairman, Jan Luba QC will be chairing the Housing Advice Conference on 23 October 2015 with keynote presentations given by Campbell Robb (Chief Executive of Shelter) and Siobhan McGrath (President of the Property Chamber of the First Tier Tribunal).
The Conference offers practical, up-to-date advice and guidance on the key recent developments in the world of housing advice from senior, experienced practitioners.
This Conference is specifically geared to meet the needs of both:
- local authority advisers, including those in Housing Options, Housing Advice, Homelessness Prevention and Tenancy Relations; and
- staff and volunteers who advise on housing law and practice in the voluntary sector including in CABx, Law Centres, Legal Advice Centres and other advice agencies.
Speakers include solicitors Giles Peaker (chair of the Housing Law Practitioner’s Association), Jayesh Kunwardia (the LALY legal aid Housing lawyer of 2015) and Diane Astin (author of the Housing Law Handbook).

The day started off wet and cold. I really had my doubts about the promised sunshine by the weather forecasters. All I could rely on was my memory of our previous Walks, it always turned out lovely somehow. And this year was no different as the sun broke through mid-afternoon. It’s funny how some things never change.
The 10km Walk started off at Carey Street, down to the Victoria Embankment through Green Park, around Hyde Park, through Trafalgar Square and back to Carey Street where a Street party awaits. Continue reading
2014 Z2K Team at the 6K point
Every year, Z2K gets a team together to participate in the London Legal Support Trust Walk to raise much needed funds for the charity. We are not funded by the government, and are totally reliant on personal funding, private grants and foundations. The money raised by the Walk is absolutely vital for us. Last year we raised enough to pay all the costs of a caseworker for 6 months.
This year we are walking in honour of Nick and so we hope that we will raise even more which will enable us to carry on the good work in his name.
