The UK government has enacted a law to criminalise squatting in residential buildings despite 96% of responses to its 'consultation' opposing any further legislation.

The legislation affects the most vulnerable people in society, empowers unscrupulous landlords and burdens the justice system, police and charities.

The Squash campaign provides resources on these impacts to raise awareness on the matter.
