Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness. We do this by giving expert housing advice on the phone, online and face-to-face. We attend court to defend people at risk of losing their home. We provide specialist support services to help families keep their home or settle into a new one. And we campaign to tackle the root cause of the housing crisis so that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.
Last year, 68,500 people who came to Shelter in need of help are now better able to keep their homes, have found a new home, or have improved their living environment. But there’s even more people out there who are in desperate need of our expert help and advice.
We’re here so that no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. We strive every day to give people the help they need, and we campaign relentlessly to achieve our vision of a safe, secure, affordable home for everyone.
141 families become homeless every day in Britain. We need your support, so we can be there for everyone who needs us.- Shelter
