Consultancy founder and tenant champion dies

The co-founder of a housing consultancy and advocate of tenants’ rights has died after a long illness.

Eifion Hughes set up London-based Public Participation Consultation and Research (PPCR) in 1989 with a focus on the social sector.

In a statement, PPCR described Mr Hughes as “a true involvement pioneer” whose work with community groups, councils, housing providers and government impacted on the lives of thousands of people.

He also played a leading role in creating and supporting tenant management organisations across London.

Ron Houston, PPCR co-founder and managing director, said: “Eifion’s personality and humour lit up colleagues, customers and communities alike.

“He had a brilliant ability to enthuse people and make them believe in and work together for positive change.

“We’re sorry to lose such a great champion for decent housing and a very dear friend.”

 Mr Hughes died on 31 December, aged 68. His funeral takes place on 29 January.
