Shelter has paid tribute to the work of Chris Holmes, former CEO, who died earlier this week. Chris led Shelter between 1994 and 2002.

Campbell Robb, Shelter's chief executive, said: 'We are extremely saddened to hear of the death of Chris Holmes.

'While I never had the opportunity to meet Chris, he is always spoken of extremely warmly, both personally and in terms of his commitment to making things better in housing.

'During his time as director he led Shelter through some difficult times, and always ensured that the voices of our clients and homeless people were at the heart of the organisation.

'Chris will be much missed at Shelter and across the sector. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.'
