Homes for Cathy
Homes for Cathy is a national alliance of housing associations, charities and local authorities working together to end homelessness.
Homes for Cathy was formed in 2016 to mark 50 years since the release of Ken Loach’s Cathy Come Home. We wanted to show that homelessness is still a significant and prevalent issue, and that the messages in Cathy Come Home are still relevant today. So we got together to raise awareness of homelessness and to work on strategies to end homelessness once and for all.
These nine commitments, created alongside Crisis’ Plan to End Homelessness, are for all housing associations to work towards. At South Yorkshire Housing Association, we work with our board to score ourselves on how well we’re meeting these commitments, how we can work towards meeting them all, and to continually monitor our progress.
