Both Maldon & Tiptree and Heybridge Swifts will support the campaign on the 27th December, with both sides wearing their respective away kits for the local derby.

The Isthmian League will also widely be supporting the campaign in an effort to support and raise awareness of homelessness in this country.

As you may know, homelessness in the UK, and housing more generally, is reaching a critical point. Over 180,000 households have been made homeless since the start of the pandemic. Shelter's work is more important than ever and football is key to their strategy in tackling the housing emergency over the next three years.

With our and the Isthmian League's unique connection to communities across the country, Shelter hope that supporting this Campaign it may help raise the awareness of homelessness, as well as the idea of "home", linking football and the cause, on which this whole campaign is based.

Osama Bhutta, director of campaigns at Shelter, said:

“Homelessness has risen dramatically over the last decade. Right now, 91 families in England are made homeless every single day – and sadly even more people could lose their homes with a challenging winter ahead of us.

Access to a safe and secure home means everything, it gives all of us the foundation for a better life - yet too many people don’t have one. I've been a football fan my entire life, and firmly believe that football is uniquely placed to help, given the importance of 'home' in the game.

Your clubs are at the heart of communities across the country and having your support for No Home Kit will enormously help to raise awareness of homelessness, and what we can all do to fight it.”
