19th Jan: Shelter
Having a home is about more than just having a roof over your head.
Homelessness is the most extreme form of housing need. But it isn’t just about people sleeping on the streets. There are many more people in England who do not have a home despite not actually sleeping rough. Some have to put up with living in temporary accommodation where they have an uncertain future. Unable to afford alternative options, others have to endure overcrowding and unsanitary conditions.
With Shelter's Now is the Time Campaign we are calling for more affordable homes, protection for people who are homeless or in bad housing and an end to the housing divide.
