We can't fight the housing emergency without your help

When you run for Shelter, you’ll be joining the fight to end the housing emergency and defending the right to a safe, secure and affordable home for everyone.

Thanks to fundraisers like you, last year we were able to support 15,555 households through our emergency helpline and 15,846 through our local hubs.

We also run campaigns to support rights for renters and demand more social housing. Together, we can end the housing emergency for good.
