Reform for Shelter fundraising team

Department will merge into new 'income and enterprise' division

The fundraising department of housing charity Shelter is to be merged into a larger unit as the result of a review of the charity's senior management structure.

Adam Sampson, chief executive of Shelter, said it intended to create an "income and enterprise division that would oversee all of the organisation's future trading, fundraising and social enterprise activity".

Alan Gosschalk, director of fundraising at the charity, declined to comment.

In October, Shelter announced plans to cut 43 non-service jobs in order to fill a reported £2m budget deficit. It said 33 jobs would be made redundant and 10 more would not be refilled.

Earlier this year, Shelter staff went on strike over plans to increase working hours and end incremental pay increases. The charity said the changes were necessary if it was to compete effectively for statutory contracts.
