Join us at party conferences

A woman and man

Shelter is holding events at all three of the main political party conferences this year. If you’re planning to be in Liverpool, Manchester or Birmingham this conference season we’d love to see you there!

The events are a great opportunity to meet MPs, local councillors, party members, activists and campaigners to talk about housing issues, share ideas, and plan for the future.

You will need to have a conference pass to gain entrance, which you can obtain directly from the political parties.
