Homelessness is averted in 96% of our cases where the outcome is known.\r\n\r\nLegacy giving continues to support the crucial work carried out by Shelter Cymru, funding 1 in every 15 people last year alone, helping 1,328 people across Wales with housing needs.\r\n\r\nGifts of all sizes continue to enable us to provide free, independent expert support and advice to thousands of individuals and families each year.\u00a0 You can leave a legacy that creates better futures for generations to come.
