Action Homeless joins Homes for Cathy

October 16, 2019

Charity joins nationwide partnership to raise awareness of needs of homeless people.

Action Homeless has joined Homes for Cathy, a national alliance of housing associations and homelessness charities dedicated to raising awareness of the needs of homeless people.

Action Homeless will be working to meet 9 commitments for Homes for Cathy, which are helping to shape and develop policies and practices on ending homelessness.

Homes for Cathy was formed to mark the 50th anniversary of the influential Ken Loach film, Cathy Come Home in 2016. The film led to a public outcry about the problem of homelessness. Housing associations were formed up and down the country, initially run by volunteers. Many have since become large providers of badly-needed affordable homes.

The Homes for Cathy group works with the National Housing Federation, Shelter, Crisis and other groups campaigning for homeless people.
