The Gift of Home

Home is more than four walls and a roof. It’s comfort, it’s stability, it’s the freedom to be yourself. It’s what everyone needs. What everyone deserves. What Shelter fights for.

You might think ‘homeless’ means sleeping rough, and sometimes it does. But often it means living in temporary or unsuitable accommodation. And every thirteen minutes a family in Britain becomes homeless. People with jobs. Families with kids. People just like you.

We want to unite retail businesses all across the UK to help people in every community find a stable home – and to help them keep it. You can join us. Stand with Shelter. Give the Gift of Home.

This winter, we’re asking you and your customers to stand side by side with us to fight homelessness.

By donating a percentage of your winter sales or a target amount over the winter period to Shelter, you'll be uniting with us to raise vital funds and awareness for homelessness. To find out more about how you can give the Gift of Home this winter, email
