The housing charity Shelter is 50 this year.
In the years after Shelter was set up, a photographer was sent to cities, including Newcastle, to document the lives of families in inadequate housing.
- The Guardian has published some of those pictures: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/gallery/2016/feb/06/gimme-shelter-hard-lives-in-british-cities-1969-72
- Look out for the shot with the Cruddas Park flats in the background.
Now Shelter would like volunteers to get involved in a new photography project to mark their 50th birthday. http://england.shelter.org.uk/campaigns_/making_change_happen/share_your_story_50th_anniversary
