Most people in Wales live in suitable homes. However, there are many people who do not have a home, or one which is so poor or insecure that it can hardly be called a home.

Through our research, policy work and campaigning, we aim to influence the Welsh agenda on housing and homelessness, by scrutinising how services are delivered and developing robust solutions to housing problems.

A testimonial from a recent commissioner:

I chaired a working group of the Independent Advice Providers Forum which tendered a contract for a research project to determine citizens’ expectations of information and advice services. Shelter Cymru’s bid, submitted by Jacqueline Campbell, was evaluated as outstanding in terms of quality, and satisfactory in terms of price. It was not the cheapest bid, but the added value that was promised was exceptional. In delivering the project, Shelter Cymru were required to act largely on their own initiative. The project was delivered to time at every stage, and the quality of the final report is exceptional. We were proud to deliver the report as part of a proposal to Welsh Government for sustainable provision of information and advice services.  I would have no hesitation in working with Jacqueline Campbell and her team at Shelter Cymru on future occasions. I can recommend their work unreservedly as offering excellent value. – Paul Swann
