How your walk helps end homelessness

We’re fighting for a future where everyone has a safe home. Many people don’t know where to turn to for help. People living in unsafe or unfit housing. People with no permanent place to call home. 

The incredible funds you raise from your walk could help us defend everyone’s right to a safe and secure home, and continue providing support to people who are facing homelessness.

I haven’t received a confirmation email yet. Am I registered?

You should have received a confirmation email when you signed up – and if you haven’t, please check your junk mail.

If you still aren’t having any luck, please email walkforhome@shelter.org.uk and we’ll get it sorted.

Where does my money go?

The money you raise will bring us closer to a world where everyone’s right to a home is guaranteed. With your help, we’ll reform private renting, demand more social homes, and be there for anyone without a safe place to call home.

Will water be provided at the event?

To help further reduce our carbon footprint, and limit plastic waste, we will not provide bottled water for each participant. Instead, we encourage all walkers to bring their own bottles from home.

Soft drinks and refreshments will be available at the end of the event.
