Shelter responds to government announcement of £3.5bn funding to help end the 'cladding scandal'

Posted 10 Feb 2021

Polly Neate, chief executive of Shelter, said: “More than three years on from the horror of Grenfell, many people are still trapped in dangerous homes. This is a symptom of a housing system which does not prioritise the right to a safe home.

“It is down to the hard work of thousands of campaigners who have refused to be silent that we are seeing cladding pushed up the political agenda. But until every single block of flats – regardless of height – is made safe, the cladding scandal is not going anywhere.”
