I am struggling to understand why Shelter has the nerve to start a new (very expensive – as seen on TV) marketing campaign to raise funds for people who may have been made homeless because of Covid-19?
Shelter already receive £15 million in funding from various public bodies, so why are they begging for more money when they don’t even use the money they receive to actually house the homeless?
How Shelter can behave in this way by pandering to the public purse in these extremely difficult times without any transparency as to their existing £15 million income and why this is not enough in order to justify their new Covid-19 campaign?
There has been a clear message to landlords, supported by legislation, by the Government to stave off any tenant repossessions for the next 3 months. Therefore, surely the money they are raising is not for legal costs in contesting landlord repossessions in court, when landlords are prohibited from doing so?
Their advertising gives me the (false) impression they are helping the Covid-19 homeless by rehousing them, even though this is not actually said. Their actions are creating an inference. Are they misleading the public as to what they are using their money for?
Can anyone enlighten me?
