Give people real change. Leave a gift in your will to Shelter.

We’re in a housing emergency. Millions of lives are being ruined. And we’ll never
properly solve it through small changes.

We need the type of change that will define a new era – one where millions of people can escape the damp and the cold and find a safe place to call home.

You can help make that real change happen with a gift in your will.

We need real change for children like Angel

Angel is just 13 years old and her childhood is being ruined by the housing emergency. Forced into temporary accommodation with her mum and two little sisters, she constantly worries about what will happen next.

Angel is just one of thousands of children currently living without a proper home. A generation is struggling – being denied a safe place to eat, study and sleep. You can help rescue a whole generation of children from the hell of homelessness with a gift in your will.

If you want to make real change happen, leave a gift to Shelter in your will.
