Shelter exists to defend the families being made homeless and forced into temporary accommodation, which has left more than 131,000 children without a proper home.
Two of these children were Lily’s. After being served a no-fault eviction, Lily and her two sons were forced to move as often as weekly, sometimes finding out at 15:30 where they would be sleeping for the night. They were taking suitcases to school and did not have a kitchen to cook in. Shelter needs your support for families like Lily’s, who, with the charity’s support, now have the keys to their new social homes.
Your donation will help those who need help to get the right information and representation. Here’s what your money could do:
£12 could enable Shelter’s Legal Team to call a social landlord and fight to save a home
£18 could pay for an expert to save someone confronted with imminent eviction and the loss of their home that provides safety and stability to their lives
£29 could fund an emergency call to Shelter’s helpline, giving a family a fighting chance in the face of homelessness
£60 could pay for legal representation in a court hearing for someone facing homelessness, giving them detailed advocacy, speaking up and amplifying their voice
£245 could pay for an advisor to help someone resolve a difficult housing issue, giving them peace of mind in their own home
£3,600 could fund Shelter’s emergency helpline across the entire country, answering, on average, 125 calls a day and providing life-changing advice
