Single Homeless Project seeking to illegally break their contract with the Mayor of London's Housing First Project in respect of our tenancy. We are forced to initiate High Court proceedings against the Greater London Authority.

Part 1: Heavey v Single Homeless Project: Will the Central London County Court rule we consented to declarations for online referral that we are paying our own salaries and that we are both mentally ill, and despite our photographic evidence to the contrary?

Heavey v The Greater London Authority. Pre-action letter:

Declan is currently working on his updated complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. This was his paragraph 36 before the High Court pre-action letter above:

36. On 15 May 2014, over a year after having been forced into street homelessness for the second time on 14 April 2013 (see paragraph 25 above), the Applicant and his wife signed a two-year tenancy agreement on a housing association flat. They are clients of the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) Housing First Project, and are housed by the Single Homeless Project (SHP), one of three charitable organisations that operate GLA Housing First. The Applicant has acquired a copy of the Agreement for the Provision of Funding Relating to the Housing First Project between the GLA and SHP. It states: "[Clients] will be offered long term tenancies.... Long term tenancies would mean for a minimum of two years with the possibility to extend and preferably for the lifetime of the client." This has been corroborated in academic publications, including a report from the University of Kent, which states that the Housing First model places homeless people "into permanent independent tenancies, with comprehensive yet non-compulsory, support". Nonetheless, on 4 September 2014, the Applicant received an email from SHP stating that GLA Housing First was terminating at the end of March 2015 and that the Applicant and his wife would have to be referred to another programme that the Applicant contends breaches SHP's legal obligation towards GLA because it does not provide the permanent accommodation and voluntary support characteristic of GLA Housing First; indeed, the Applicant and his wife do not even qualify for this other programme because they do not require support to live independently. On 9 March 2015, and despite the Applicant's protestations, he and his wife were referred by SHP to this other programme and told they were no longer GLA Housing First clients. The Applicant contends that this illegal manoeuvre by SHP will inevitably result in him and his wife being evicted from their flat and constitutes a serious threat to life (see paragraph 38 below).
