Leaving a Legacy

Since 1981, Shelter Cymru has helped over half a million people in Wales in housing need. Our fight against homelessness isn’t over.

Over the past 35 years, legacy income has played a substantial part in helping us to prevent homelessness in Wales. As the demand on our services continues to grow year on year, your support could enable us to help even more people when they need us most.

No matter the size, leaving a gift in your Will is one of the easiest and simplest ways to support Shelter Cymru.

A gift to Shelter Cymru in your Will requires no immediate financial outlay. Your gift will enable us to provide free, independent expert support and advice to thousands of people each year on the phone, online and face-to-face.

41% of the households we helped last year included children. You really can leave a legacy that creates better futures for generations to come.

In Memoriam

There are many ways to give in memory to celebrate your loved one. Donations in lieu of/ as well as flowers at a funeral can be requested and a Remembrance Fund/ Event is a fitting way to honour a life whilst changing the lives of others. 1 in every 169 people in Wales needed our help last year. Donations really do make a difference.
