A group of housing associations that were formed in the Cathy Come Home era (1960’s), came together in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of Cathy Come Home and to highlight the continuing needs of homeless people.
The Homes for Cathy group has been organising a range of local and national events over the last two years, with the aim of raising awareness of the needs of the homeless and working on strategies to end homelessness. The group works alongside the National Housing Federation, Shelter, Crisis and other groups campaigning for homeless people.
Previous work with the media, members of the House of Lords and the Cardboard Citizens Theatre workshop, can be seen on this website.
