Help us provide vital legal services to people facing homelessness

Our Legal team help people facing threats to their home – from coping with severe disrepair to illegal eviction or repossession.

Access to legal services means that people might be able to keep their home. But to provide free expert advice and legal representation, the team need vital funding.

We need your support. Join the Justice Fund today.

How the Justice Fund helps

The Justice Fund raises money to partly fund our Legal team, so we can fight for vulnerable people and make sure they’re treated fairly by the system.

With this vital funding, we can:

  • take on eviction notices

  • dispense urgent advice

  • take landmark cases to the Supreme Court.

As a member, you’ll be standing up for the 108 families who become homeless in Britain every single day. Your support will directly impact their lives.

With your help, we can put an end to unsafe housing and homelessness.

Our lives and our mental and physical health were rapidly deteriorating as the result of everything my children and I had been through. Shelter empowered us, enriched our lives, and helped us at our bleakest moments.

Every day, one way or another, we stop someone – in most cases a family – from being homeless. Support from donors means I can go the extra mile for my clients and not stay within the confines of legal aid, ensuring the best outcomes for the people who need our help.

Our new ambassador

We are proud to have Robert Rinder on board

I am proud to be a Justice Fund member because I know that access to legal advice can be life-changing.

But too many people still don’t have access to advice or the justice they deserve. This makes them extraordinarily vulnerable to bad housing and homelessness. However, we can use the law and legal expertise to stop people from becoming homeless in the first place.
