Leave a gift in your will
By leaving a gift to Shelter in your will, you can help us to be there for people struggling with bad housing and homelessness, long into the future.
It's easier than you think, and means we can help even more people find a safe and comfortable home, not just a place to sleep.
With you every step of the way
Leaving a gift in your will, no matter how big or small, could help us give struggling families the support they need. We’re here to help you do that.
Our will-making guide takes you through all the things you’ll want to think about when preparing to make or update a will. And our legacy adviser is available to provide support and advice - by email or over the phone - whenever you need it.

How your legacy can help
Every 10 minutes, another family in Britain becomes homeless. Thanks to your legacy, a family could have somewhere safe and secure to call home, for years to come.
Shelter’s national helpline and local advice services give free, expert advice to thousands of families and individuals in desperate housing need. Your gift could help make sure we’re there for them when they need us most.
