Bad housing wrecks lives
Shelter believes everyone should have a home.
They help 100,000 people a year fight for their rights, get back on their feet, and find and keep a home. Shelter also tackles the root causes of Britain's housing crisis by campaigning for new laws, policies, and solutions.
We are the fourth richest country in the world, and yet millions of people in Britain wake up every day in housing that is run-down, overcrowded or dangerous. Many others have lost their homes altogether. Bad housing robs us of security, health, and a fair chance in life.
We can help you if you are:
- having problems with your landlord
- facing eviction
- living in run-down, dangerous, or overcrowded housing
- having trouble paying the rent
- experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour
- living in temporary accommodation.
We know the damage bad housing can cause. We understand the burden it puts on families, relationships, health, education, and other aspects of peoples lives.
If you have a housing problem, don't wait until it becomes a crisis. Contact Shelter for the help and support you need now.
