When you purchase a donation through this store, your exact purchased item is sent directly to your selected Shelter location. They can then distribute or use the donated items as required, making a real, tangible difference to someone's life. It also means that they don't have to spend money donations on items, and can instead use it for those things only money can buy.
There is no minimum order size, and all items include free delivery.
Shelter don’t pay for our service, and we use just £0.50 of the item prices below to cover our transaction costs and price fluctuations from our suppliers. We don't profit from the sale of any items on the website, and instead rely on corporate sponsorship to keep us running.

More About Shelter
A home is a fundamental human need and a basic moral right, as vital as education or healthcare. But in Britain today, that right is being denied to millions of people whose lives are blighted by homelessness, bad conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. Shelter's strategy sets out to be a turning point, an ambitious and fearless response to what has become a national emergency. Everything they do aims to defend the right to a safe home.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. They campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to use Shelter again.
