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.
Homes for Cathy arranges a number of local and national events to raise awareness of the needs of the homeless and to work on strategies to end homelessness. The group works alongside the National Housing Federation, Shelter, Crisis and other groups campaigning for homeless people.
