Homes for Cathy
emh group is a member of Homes for Cathy, a national alliance of housing associations and homelessness charities dedicated to raising awareness of the needs of homeless people.
We are working to meet 9 commitments for Homes for Cathy, which are helping to shape and develop our 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.
