ScS partner with UK’s biggest homelessness charity, Shelter

Leading interior retailer ScS has announced a partnership with Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity.


The retailer are committed to support the charity
to end the devastating impact the housing emergency has on people and communities.
 

ScS is donating £25,000 to support Shelters vital services, including its emergency helpline, which provides life changing assistance for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. This donation comes as the estimated number of people sleeping rough has increased 26% in a year. 

Behind the scenes, ScS has been working closely with Shelters retail stores. Through donating both their time and expertise, ScS colleagues have provided much needed support for new popup ventures as well as Shelters Erdington upcycling workshop. ScS has also donated over 100 unwanted products to Shelter for resale to raise funds for the charity.  


Commenting on the partnership so far, Andy Harris, director of income generation at Shelter, said:
“We are so pleased to announce our partnership with ScS. We share the belief that home is everything and their support will help us raise funds for our vital services on the frontline of the housing emergency. Shelter is here for anyone facing bad housing and homelessness, providing free expert advice and support 365 days a year.” 

Demonstrating a huge step forward in their corporate social responsibility, Marie Liston, corporate services director at ScS adds “We are delighted to be partnering with Shelter and support their efforts to emphasise the importance of home – something that’s close to us at ScS too


Everyone deserves a safe place to call home and this partnership allows us to help Shelter bring that security to people across the country. Our efforts will not only support the charity with its national work but also those in the communities close to us by providing affordable furniture to Shelter stores. We look forward to seeing this partnership flourish.”
