Pass on a Wales
where everyone has a home

We are in a housing emergency. 1 in 3 people in Wales are living in the grip of it. You can help us to change things for the better by leaving us a gift in your will.

Many have recently been reflecting on the things that matter the most – family, friends and the causes close to your heart. We have also been reminded of the desperate inequality that exists in our society. But together, we can build a fairer housing system for generations to come.

After taking care of your family and friends, even a small amount can make a huge impact on the work we do here at Shelter Cymru.

A gift in your will could help us to...

  • Fight for better housing rights in Wales.

  • Raise awareness of our cause so that people know we are here to help.

I’ve seen first hand the impact that Shelter Cymru has, improving the plight of people in Wales who are in housing need. If I am able to play my part, however small, in helping someone who may be faced with the trauma of losing their home… why wouldn’t I do that? I am leaving Shelter Cymru a gift in my will because, sadly, many more people need their help. Their vital work must continue. ”

– Diane, Shelter Cymru supporter.
