This great offer includes:

  • Six months free contents insurance when you buy buildings and contents cover together
  • Free legal expenses cover up to £50,000
  • Home emergency cover for just 12p in the first year
  • Online discounts of up to 16%¹
  • Up to 40% no claims discount

Louise Parkes, Shelter‘s director of fundraising said:

‘This special partnership will make a huge difference to some of the thousands of families who contact Shelter every year suffering the devastating effects of homelessness and bad housing. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Co-op from Shelter!’
