Each year, 19,000 people – 1 in every 169 people in Wales – come to us for help. In 41% of cases, there are children in the home.


Since 1981, Shelter Cymru has helped more than half a million people fight for their rights, get back on their feet, and find – and keep – a home. We have also brought about policy and legislative changes that have helped countless more.

We provide free, independent, expert housing advice and support on the phone, online and face to face in all 22 unitary authorities in Wales; our front line services are available to all. We attend court to defend people at risk of losing their home. We provide specialist support services to help families keep their homes and we campaign to tackle the root causes of the housing crisis. Homelessness is averted in 92% of our cases where the outcome is known.

We need to raise significantly more money if we are to be there for everyone in Wales that needs us – both now and in the future.

Remembering Shelter Cymru in your Will means that we can be there for families and individuals when they need us most. Legacies will prevent over 500 people from becoming homeless in Wales this year.
