Emergency Disaster Relief

Right now, more than 88 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural 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

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

At ShelterBox, we strive to do the right thing.

It is an important value at the heart of our organisation and it drives our commitment to improving equality, diversity and inclusion in our work and workplace.

That’s why, in 2020, we are undertaking an external audit of our equality, diversity and inclusion practice across the organisation to create a roadmap for how we will improve.

Read more about how we are committing to improve equality, diversity and inclusion within ShelterBox.
