Work for Home

Work for Home

Friday 15 May is National work From Home Day, and in light of everything that's going on, we're encouraging people to #WorkForHome instead.

Work for Home (18-29 May)

Since lockdown started, working from home has become the new normal for many. It’s been a big change. But millions of us are lucky enough to be able to adapt, because we have a safe and secure place to call home.

As part of Work For Home, we’re asking our supporters to stand up and raise awareness for those who don’t have a safe and secure home during lockdown. To work from home and help save someone else's.

We’re asking those who can to donate what they have saved by working remotely, and share the Work for Home message on social media and their email auto-reply. To get involved and help support Shelter during this difficult time, please visit

Shelter and COVID-19

Shelter and COVID-19

Together, we can fight homelessness in these uncertain times

Our phones are ringing off the hook each day

Since the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic began, we’ve seen a steep rise in calls to our helpline. As we can no longer carry out face-to-face support, we’re working hard to increase the resources that will enable helpline advisers to work from home.

To do this, we need your help.

None of us know how the next few months will play out. But, with more than 11 million private renters in the UK and many on zero-hour contracts or in other unstable employment, there will be thousands more people facing months of fear and uncertainty.

You can help protect them. These are uncertain times. But together, we can prevent more people from losing their homes.
