'In memory' donations

Mother and baby laughing on the beach'In memory' donations are a positive way to celebrate a life while helping Shelter to make a difference to the lives of future generations.

Long after flowers have faded, donations made in memory of a loved one live on. They allow Shelter to offer sustained support to people in housing need, and to campaign for long term solutions to homelessness and bad housing.

'In Memory' tributes online

An online tribute is a great way for friends and family to commemorate, celebrate or simply remember someone special whilst also having the opportunity to raise donations for Shelter.

There are many ways in which you can develop your tribute including adding pictures, music and video and you will also be able to invite friends and relatives to contribute and share treasured memories and images.

Shelter has a partnership with online tribute site MuchLoved. In a short time you can set up and personalise your own memorial website that can be kept online for ten years without any charge. If you wish, you may also use this service to support Shelter’s work with homeless and badly housed people.
