In this briefing, author Angel Strachan outlines the key elements of putting this strategy into practise. At the heart of Shelter's strategy is to bring communities together, different people working towards the common aim to bring an end to the current housing crisis.
Shelter maintains 13 hubs across the country, has charity shops in towns and cities across the country, and runs a Helpline; all services are run or supported by volunteers. Volunteers and Shelper employees assure local and media pressence, actively alert to issues of housing and homelessness via social media, whilst alerting Government to issues of housing and homelessness, running campaigns and develops solutions to end the current housing crisis.
The briefing gives gigures and statistics about the current housing situation, and illustrates with case studies the impact of inadequate housing, the threat of losing or being denied a home has on individuals and families. case studies also demonstrate the positive impact of professionals, volunteers and members of the community working together in trying to improve the current situation.
