Remember a loved one

Creating a tribute fund is a very personal and rewarding way to remember someone you love by donating to Shelter, a cause they were passionate about, in their memory.

How your Fund helps

Shelter is here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. Every year we help millions of people; giving them crucial advice and actively campaigning to end the housing crisis. With your help we will be able to continue this vital work.


We believe that everyone should have a home

For more than forty years, ever since the film 'Cathy Come Home' created a wave of public indignation about the human cost of homelessness, Shelter has been working to give everyone in Britain the most basic right of all - to live in a decent, safe, and affordable home.

Here is some of the vital work we do:

Free housing advice helpline
Our helpline gives free, confidential and expert advice to thousands of people with housing problems every year - and prevents many people becoming homeless

Housing advice centres
Our national network of centres provide information, advice and support to anyone in housing need. Our advisers let people know their rights, explain their options and can help prevent eviction or repossession

Support services
Shelter runs a number of projects tailored to specific needs. For example, our children's service supports children in temporary housing; our families projects help families make the transition from homelessness to a settled home; and we run a tenancy support scheme for older people.

Shelter campaigns hard to keep homelessness and bad housing at the forefront of the political agenda. We pressurise the Government for lasting solutions to the housing crisis and for investment in decent affordable homes for all.

There are many ways to fundraise in someone’s memory, from joining one of our many existing challenges, to hosting your own event. Either way, your tribute fund is a perfect way to start helping families facing homelessness, and every pound you raise makes a real difference - all you need to do is get involved.

Donating to your Fund

Why not encourage others to donate to your tribute fund, by asking them to donate in lieu of flowers at a funeral service, or instead of gifts at birthdays or other celebrations. Such donations are a rewarding and thoughtful way to help others whilst keeping your much missed loved ones in mind.
