Volunteers' Week 2018

Thank you to all of you who volunteer to help Shelter fight bad housing and homelessness. You really make a difference – and we couldn’t do it without you.

Hear from our volunteers

From shops, to service hubs, here’s what our volunteers enjoy most about their time with Shelter.

Volunteering has given me the opportunity to discover more about myself and the world around me – and an excuse to meet new people!


Events & community fundraising volunteer

I love being on the shop floor because it gives you the opportunity meet people, and spread the awareness of what Shelter is trying to do with affordable housing.


Shops assistant manager

I enjoy the feeling of satisfaction when I have done the work and feeling that I’ve made a small contribution towards what is a very sad and serious problem.
