Shelter is the UK’s leading housing and homelessness charity. Our vision is that everyone should have a home. Each year we help over 170,000 people. We do this by providing vital advice through our free housing helpline, our national network of Housing Aid Centres and specific locally tailored projects. We also campaign for fairer legislation and better housing policies in order to address the root causes of homelessness and bad housing. We rely on voluntary donations in order to be able to continue our services, and regular monthly direct debits from members of the public provide the backbone of our funding.
