How your fundraising will help fight the housing emergency

We’re fighting for a future where no one is homeless. A future where everyone has a safe home.

Last year we advised 17,281 households through our emergency helpline.

As well as helping people in housing need, we work in communities to understand the problem and change the system. And we run national campaigns to fight for change at the top.

By taking on this challenge, you’ll be helping defend the right to a safe home. Because home is everything.
