The Shelter UK big build up to Christmas is here and they want you can be a part of it. With the credit crunch biting the nation, Shelter will be working harder than ever to help families in desperate need to keep the roof over their heads.
The build up to Christmas is an exciting time, but not so happy for thousands of families around the UK facing the festive season in bad housing or homeless. 1.6million children will spend Christmas living below the poverty line, whilst 57,000 households in England alone will face the festive season homeless living in temporary accommodation.
Last Christmas, Shelter’s free national housing advice helpline answered an average of 101 calls each day.
The helpline will again be open over the Christmas period, as it has been for the last 10 years, to provide desperately needed support and advice.
