Rainy Day Trust launches specialist advice service with Shelter

The Rainy Day Trust (RDT) is delighted to announce a 12-month partnership with Shelter to provide high quality, specialist advice to beneficiaries from the home improvement sector that have a housing need. Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through advice, support and legal services. Shelter campaigns to make sure that one day, everyone will have a safe and stable place to call home.

The Rainy Day Trust already offers applicants a broad range of support including legal advice and counselling, and will now also provide an extra level of support and specialist housing advice through access to Shelter’s Helpline Plus Service. The need for telephone support in complex cases or where there are particular needs that warrant more intensive support is something that we have been working towards for some time.

Commenting on the new partnership, RDT CEO Bryan Clover said: “In a time of economic uncertainty, some companies in our industry are tightening budgets, which in turn places an increased burden on families’ budgets and housing needs. This new project will help many of our beneficiaries keep a roof over their heads and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”

Note for Editors

The Rainy Day Trust operates across three sectors (builders merchants, DIY & Hardware and Housewares & Tabletop) which have a combined turnover of more than £50billion and employ close to 500,000 people. It is the only charity which exists solely to help people who have worked in these industries, including DIY Shops, Hardware Stores, Builders Merchants, Garden Centres, Cookshops, and all the manufacturers, distributors and retailers in the UK who supply them. The RDT grew out of two benevolent funds for the industry with roots back to 1843, and now offers a range of services to retail and supplier employees – from a regular cash payment to white goods and even house repairs.
