Shelter Cymru helps thousands of people every year who are struggling with bad housing or homelessness and we campaign hard to prevent it in the first place.

We believe that everyone has the right to a decent, secure home. Yet despite the UK being one of the richest countries in the world there are still far too many people who do not have a place they can call home.



If you’ve been discriminated against when looking for a home, report it to us so we can take action.
