This photography exhibition has been created by student photographers from the department of Communication Design at the Glasgow School of Art. Its aim is to tell the story about the work Shelter Scotland does in Scotland today, the people we support and the impact of the current housing crisis.
The students have worked with our staff, clients, shop staff and volunteers across Scotland to understand how and why Shelter Scotland supports people in housing need and why we are still fighting until there's a home for everyone.
