"The only Professional Fundraising Organisation
to include dedicated donor monitoring as part of what we do"
From the roof of the east London office of the charity Shelter, you can see the remnants of over a century of the capital's housing policy. Old terraced houses, turn of the century estates, oppressive Sixties tower blocks, the Modernist grandeur of the Barbican, and the knot of skyscrapers in the City beyond.
Years before he became chief executive of Shelter, Campbell Robb lived in a Peabody estate, much like the one below. Well-built and available at affordable rents, these kinds of homes are increasingly unavailable for London's burgeoning Generation Rent, which PwC estimated that will increase from 40pc in 2000, to 60pc in 2025.
Downstairs in Robb's office, there is a poster with 'Enough is Enough!' written in big red letters, commissioned for the charity's 50th anniversary this year. Shelter started life campaigning for the millions of 'hidden homeless', who lived in slums; it was the same year as Kathy Come Home, Ken Loach's famous film about homelessness.
