Shelter welcomes news of the National League supporting its #NoHomeKit campaign

Osama Bhutta, director of campaigns at Shelter, said: “We’re thrilled that the National League is officially backing our No Home Kit campaign. Its 66 clubs in communities around the country join the growing line-up of teams, fans and personalities from across football who have already pledged their support. We hope their support encourages even more people to come on board to help us raise awareness of homelessness this Christmas. 

"No Home Kit is a simple idea that anyone can get involved with to help make a difference. We’re just asking the football community to unite for the Boxing Day round of fixtures by swapping their team’s ‘home’ colours for their away or third kit as a powerful act of solidarity for people without a home. 

“Right now, 91 families in England are made homeless every single day and sadly more could face losing their homes with a tough winter ahead. We hope as many clubs, players and fans as possible continue to join #NoHomeKit so we can harness the unifying power of football and do something special to help those facing homelessness.”
