Equality & Diversity

Our commitment to diversity and inclusiveness is a core value of Shelter’s work. This commitment is a social and moral responsibility, and informs everything we do. We’ve put our commitment into practice by assessing the equality and diversity impact of all our services, and monitoring the diversity of our clients to help us understand the housing problems that different groups of people face.

Outside of our services, we’ve helped other organisations be better by delivery Equality Practice Training, advising the Mayor of London on equality in his housing strategy and, with a coalition of other charities, pioneering a new Equality and Human Rights framework for the charity sector.
