Shelter Shelter

Shelter is a charity that works to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing, providing confidential advice to people with all kinds of housing problems. It tackles the root causes of bad housing by lobbying government and local authorities for new laws and policies, and more investment, to improve the lives of homeless and badly housed people. As a leading expert on housing in Britain, Shelter develops practical solutions to address the housing crisis. It also works with the housing sector to promote good practice, publish reports and deliver professional training.
