How we can help

As a precautionary measure, in line with government guidance, the Shelter Bristol face-to-face services are temporarily closed. You can still access our support, guidance, and expert advice services via our get help pages online, or by calling the Bristol service team.

The people we support are our priority, and we are working hard to limit the impact on our services.

Advice and guidance

For advice or guidance, call 03301 755 121 between the hours of 9am–5pm, Monday to Friday.

Our Legal Aid legal services

We also have a Legal team who can help you if you are eligible for Legal Aid. For example, we might be able to help if you need to go to court about a housing problem or challenge a council’s homelessness decision.

You'll need to make an appointment to speak with our Legal team, by calling 0344 515 1778 between the hours of 9am–5pm, Monday to Friday. Please note: this number is for legal appointments only.
