Help people fighting for a safe home. Donate now.

We exist to defend the right to a safe home. Because home is everything.

17.5 million people are living in overcrowded, dangerous, unstable or unaffordable housing. This is the housing emergency.

Our advice and support services offer one-to-one help with housing issues and homelessness. We work in communities to understand the problem and change the system. We run national campaigns to fight for change at the top. And our solicitors help people who’ve lost their homes or are facing eviction.
