Shelter's housing advice online
Written by Kirsty McKechnie and Elaine Macintyre, Writer/Editors, Information Team, Shelter Scotland.
Advice online is the housing advice section of the Shelter website. First launched in April 2004, funding from the Vodafone UK Foundation has since allowed for a drastic overhaul and expansion so that it now covers a wider range of housing issues. Its aim is to empower people by providing them with knowledge of their housing rights, and to suggest to them practical ways of enforcing these rights.
Kirsty McKechnie and Elaine Macintyre , as Writer/editors on Advice online , discuss the rationale behind this resource and tell us how it is being used and received.
