Making change happen

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

Every 14 minutes a family in Britain loses their home.

But with your help we can save our safety net and fix private renting for England's 9 million renters.

And by campaigning for more affordable homes we can solve the housing shortage.

For more info about our current campaigns, please contact info@shelter.org.uk or call 0300 330 1234.
