I’m absolutely appalled at the news that the new owner of the Mary Feilding Guild has told the residents they need to leave by the end of May. This is a shocking way to treat vulnerable older residents, giving them eviction notices in the midst of a pandemic. I’ve met virtually with residents of Mary Feilding Guild to hear their concerns and offer my support and you can read my letters to the Care Minister and Haringey Council’s Chief Executive below.
Older people have endured a lonely year, often feeling helpless and ignored. These Guild residents should be able to remain in their homes and I’ll do everything I can to support them.
I’ve also written to the Charity Commission to ask them to review whether due diligence procedures were followed at every stage of the sale process. Read my letter here.
