Help families who have lost everything to war and disaster create a home where their children can play and feel safe.

Turn a shelter into a home this Christmas.

Emergency Disaster Relief

Right now, more than 113 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.

We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.

Our impact

Get your copy of Tamesis Street

After a catastrophic flood hits London, Isla and her neighbours must come together to survive.

That’s the plot of an all-star climate change book being published by ShelterBox to raise vital funds for disaster-hit families. With contributions by Sir Quentin Blake, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, Chris Packham, and Joanne Harris, Tamesis Street imagines a future where London is destroyed by rising sea levels.
