By volunteering with Shelter, you can be a part of changing things for the better.

Volunteers are integral to Shelter’s fight against bad housing and homelessness – this year alone, our amazing volunteers contributed over 20,000 hours of volunteering time!

We have a wide variety of volunteer roles in Shelter services, shops and offices right across the UK, as well as at Shelter events.

And you’ll get all the support you need to increase your skills and confidence – and enjoy your volunteer experience.
