Introduction

The housing and homelessness charity Shelter is conducting this survey on behalf of your employer, Co-operative Group. The survey is completely anonymous, and neither Shelter nor your employer will know whether you have taken part or what answers you give. 
 
It should take you 5 to 10 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you will be directed to Shelter’s online housing advice, but you can also access this at any time by going to www.shelter.org.uk. 

The aim of this survey is to help your employer, as well as Shelter, to better understand what housing issues affect you and your colleagues. Having that knowledge will enable us to look at ways to help.  
 
This survey will be open until Friday 28th February. We will then prepare a report for Co-operative group, outlining the types of housing problems colleagues face and suggest ways to support them. 
 
This survey is totally anonymous so we will not be able to answer personal questions raised or respond to specific needs.  Should you have an urgent housing issue and you need help immediately, please check Shelter’s online advice here or call their helpline on 0808 800 4444, if you are in England.
