We exist to defend the right to a safe home in Wales and fight the devastating impact the housing emergency has on people and society.

We do this with advice, support and campaigns – and we never give up.

Last year, Shelter Cymru helped 17,953 people though our services, including 5,725 households with dependent children. We will always fight for home, and for everyone without one. But we can’t do it without you. Help us keep our free advice services open for everyone in Wales who needs our help.

We believe that home is everything.
