Shelter have documented their strategy for the next three years 2019 – 2022: click here to view the full document.
Their purpose: Shelter exists to defend the right to a safe home. (note not to provide a safe home)
How they will achieve change: “A nationwide movement demanding social housing and defending rights
– In communities we harness the power of our services, shops, campaigners, donors, and partners to effect change
– Everyone who comes into contact with Shelter can contribute to ending the national emergency
We want a future without discrimination based on housing or benefits status
- We use the law to strengthen rights and fight discrimination
- All whose rights are denied or at risk can get the best digital advice
Every Shelter hub is a base for change in its community
- We understand what’s needed in every area we work in and the individual, local and national impact of denying the right to a home
- We help others to tackle the housing emergency by providing professional training and support
People who struggle are supported to find the best solution for them and their children
- We empower people to challenge society’s denial of rights and to believe change is possible
- We ensure support is available for children and their families who have been homeless or living in slum conditions
- Local partnerships help people overcome the problems that put them at risk of losing their home
- If you are homeless or your home is at risk you can get advice on the phone immediately”
“Our enemy is social injustice, and we cannot fight it alone. The national emergency cannot be stopped by anything less than a national movement.
“We know our strategy can only succeed if thousands join together. We will work with individuals and organisations – those who care about or are affected by the national emergency, or who advocate or support those most impacted. At the heart of this we’ll seek to recruit 500,000 supporters to defend the right to a safe home. We will harness the power for change of our services, shops, campaigners, donors and partners.”
The social injustice is a lack of housing so it should be time they work with landlords in a positive, constructive and collaborative way
