Polly Neate

Chief Executive

The desperate need for a home for all is one of the most pressing social justice issues of our time. Shelter is uniquely placed to make a decisive difference, and it's a huge privilege and opportunity to be part of it

Polly joined Shelter in August 2017 from Women’s Aid, where she was Chief Executive. Previously, she was Executive Director of External Relations and Communications at Action for Children, one of the UK’s largest charities.
