A robust plan for tangible change
Shelter will stop at nothing to support and empower people on the way to a safe home for all. Our services and our campaigning work are equally important in driving this change.
Three clear priorities
Rights for renters
From 2011 to 2017, private rents increased by 16% - but wages only rose by 10%.
This means private renters are doubly squeezed.
Help for people who are struggling
Right now, 1.1 million households are on the waiting list for social housing, yet fewer than 6,500 new social homes were delivered last year.
Too many people have fallen through the gaps in-between.
Building social housing
Shelter is the leading source of housing advice in the country, but last year, we could only answer one in every three calls to our helpline.
We must be able to keep up with demand.
