Working closely with schools

We’ve been campaigning for better housing for over 50 years. Bad housing and homelessness affects pupils and families across the country. So we’ve put together a treasure trove of resources to get you thinking about what housing really means, and help you fundraise for us in school.

Designed by teachers, for teachers, our resources are curriculum-linked and available for free! Take a look below and if you like what you see, why not sign up to our Schools newsletter?

How should I send in the money we raise?

If you’ve done some fundraising at school, you can send the money to us in the following ways… And we’ll send out a thank you letter for you to share with the school.

You can pay via cheque – just make it payable to ‘Shelter’, and send to 88 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HU. Remember to include a note with your school name and what you did to fundraise.

Alternatively, submit your money online using our donation page – or email us at schools@shelter.org.uk for a paying-in slip.
