Could you live here? Ikea helps raise issue of homelessness

Words by Abi Scaife

Ikea has created ‘Real Life Roomsets’ in a number of its UK stores to highlight the issue of homelessness.

Tell me more.

Together with their charity partner Shelter, a charity that supports people experiencing homelessness, Ikea has created rooms in four of their stores that reflect the reality of temporary accommodation.

This is part of Shelter’s ongoing campaign with Ikea, demanding  90,000 social homes to be built a year by 2030 to help address the housing emergency.

If you want to see any of Ikea’s ‘Real Life Roomsets’ you can do so in their Hammersmith, Warrington, Birmingham and Bristol stores.

If you want to support Shelter’s campaign for more social housing, you can do so on its website.
