Registered Charity No: 263710 (England & Wales).

Every year, Shelter helps millions of people struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign so that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.

We’re here so that no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.

Until there’s a home for everyone.

Every day, we hear from households in desperate need - people suffering from health problems, mental health issues such as depression and stress, and families whose children are missing out on their education or are being bullied - all as a result of bad housing or homelessness.

We provide free, confidential advice and support to people who come to us with all kinds of housing problems, through our website, helplines, and face-to-face local services. We help people find and keep a home in a place where they can thrive, and we tackle the root causes of bad housing by campaigning for new laws, policies and solutions.

To continue this work, we rely heavily on the gifts that supporters leave us in their wills. That’s why remembering Shelter in your will is one of the most important ways that you can help.

Please help us with a legacy in your will. It will make a difference for generations to come. For your free legacy booklet, please contact Katie Small directly on 0344 515 1746, email or by writing to the address provided in the contact us section.

We need your help to continue our work. Please support us.
