Registered Charity No: 263710 (England & Wales).
Due to soaring rents, a lack of social housing and widespread discrimination, we’re right in the middle of a housing emergency. Almost 5,000 people are sleeping rough, over 80,000 have no permanent place to live and six million households’ right to safety, security and stability is being denied or threatened. It’s outrageous that this many people are suffering in the world’s fifth richest country.
Shelter defends the universal right to a safe home.
When you leave a gift in your Will to Shelter, you’ll be upholding this right for future generations. You’ll be funding our emergency helpline and frontline services, which provide advice and support to millions of people every year. You’ll also support our campaigns for new laws and policies which tackle the root causes of homelessness. Ultimately, your gift to Shelter is a lasting gift to society.
