Charity of the Week | Shelter

Who are Shelter?

We’ve been campaigning since 1966, and we won’t stop until there’s a safe, secure, affordable home for everyone.

We were formed in 1966 by Bruce Kenrick (founder chairman) and Des Wilson (founder-director), in response to the country’s massive housing crisis.

Their vision – along with co-founders Edwin Barker, David Reid, Rev. Eammon Casey and Lewis Waddilove – was to establish one organisation to speak for the millions of ‘hidden homeless’ living in overcrowded slums. This organisation was Shelter.

What do they do?
