Andy Harris, director of income generation at Shelter, says: “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.” 

Marie Liston, corporate services director at ScS, adds: “We are delighted to be partnering with Shelter and supporting 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.”
