Shelter

Categories: Social Welfare

A charity that campaigns to end homelessness and bad housing in England and Scotland. Founded by Bruce Kenrick it evolved out of the work on behalf of homeless people being carried on at St Martin-in-the-Fields and was also spurred by the public outcry following transmission of the B.B.C. television play 'Cathy Come Home', which dealt with the problems of homelessness.
