Housing charity appoints new head Housing charity appoints new head

Housing charity Shelter has appointed a new head of policy, research and public affairs.

Previously head of government relations for Save the Children, Bernard Aryeetey was at the heart of successful campaigns to maintain Britain's aid commitments during the economic downturn, and helped secure services to prevent some of the world's poorest children dying from preventable illness and malnutrition.

Bernard has also worked with World Vision, the Commission for Racial Equality and YouGov.

Bernard said: “The way that Shelter works tirelessly to transform the lives of people who are struggling with bad housing really drew me to working with the charity.
“With housing continuing to rise up the political agenda, now is a crucial time for Shelter to push for long term change. I'm really excited about working with the team to win on key issues that will make a difference right now and for generations to come.”

As the UK’s largest housing charity, Shelter offers advice, information and advocacy to people struggling with bad housing or homelessness, and campaigns for lasting political change to tackle the root causes of this.

Roger Harding, Shelter’s director of communications, policy and campaigns, said: “We’re delighted that Bernard is joining the Shelter team to help us drive change and make a significant lasting difference to all those struggling with housing problems.

“He brings with him an impressive track record in developing and delivering winning influencing strategies, innovative policy and robust research.”
