Our experts offer advice, advocacy and free legal aid to people who face housing issues or homelessness.

Thanks to fundraisers like you, last year we supported 15,555 households in England through our emergency helpline and 15,846 through our local hubs.

Every mile, every drop of sweat, and every pound you raise will help create housing justice.

'It was a pleasure running for Shelter. Thanks for giving me a place so I could support your work while taking part in the run. I'd really like to do it again - my aim will be to beat my fundraising from this year!'

Frequently asked questions

How do I fundraise for my event?

We're here to help with any fundraising queries and are more than happy to talk through ideas with you. We recommend starting by setting up a fundraising page on JustGiving.

Our top fundraising ideas include bake sales and pub quizzes. You can find all our fundraising resources here, including our paper sponsorship form.

I’m injured or can no longer participate. Can I get my registration fee refunded?

If you're no longer able to take part, please let us know by emailing running@shelter.org.uk.

Registration fees for charity places in events are non-refundable and can't be transferred to someone else or deferred to the following year. If you secured your own place in the event, you'll need to check the event's refund policy on their website or on your registration confirmation.

If you become aware that your card has been used fraudulently, please contact your card provider.

If your donors would like a refund on the sponsorship they have given you, they'll need to contact us directly with details of their payment.

What happens if I can’t reach my fundraising pledge?

We're here to support you with your fundraising as much as possible. Get in touch by emailing running@shelter.org.uk or call us on 0344 515 1190.

Not reaching your sponsorship pledge affects what Shelter can achieve, so please make sure you're confident in reaching this target before signing up to the event.

Raising a minimum sponsorship pledge

It's important to raise a minimum sponsorship pledge, as we invest in places at charity events. Each place is important to ensure we raise as much as possible to support our vital work.
