Shelter Cymru is Wales’ people and homes charity. We believe that a decent secure home is a fundamental right and essential to the health and well-being of people and communities.
We provide independent specialist advice, advocacy and legal representation for anyone with housing problems. In 2014, our advisers provided face-to-face help for nearly 16,000 people from all over Wales, helping to prevent homelessness in 86 per cent of cases where it was threatened. Meanwhile, more than 200,000 people visited our Get advice pages for help.
Although we work closely with our sister organisations in England and Scotland, we are a completely independent charity and focus entirely on the needs of people in Wales.
In addition to our housing advice services, Shelter Cymru has a number of specialist projects, which tend to focus on the more practical support issues and are often working in partnership with other organisations.
