Book a Speaker

Bring the story of ShelterBox to life by inviting a speaker to your event

Booking a ShelterBox speaker to give a talk is one of the most inspiring ways to hear about our work.

Whether you’re fundraising for us or simply looking to find out more about disaster relief, our speakers really bring our work to life. You’ll get a direct insight into how we help families who have lost their homes to conflict or natural disaster, and how you can make a difference.

Our committed network of volunteer speakers are passionate about what we do and love the opportunity to tell others about ShelterBox.

We don’t charge a fee and our volunteers’ expenses are covered. All we ask is that you consider supporting ShelterBox by making a donation or organising a fundraising activity. We can send you fundraising information and materials to help you plan a successful event.

David was fantastic, his passion and enthusiasm for ShelterBox shone through and was infectious. David’s wide range of resources really added a great deal of value to the talk. It was excellent that our group could get so hands-on!

Our speakers are trained to cover a wide range of audiences. From church groups to school assemblies or university conferences – any size audience and any age range.

We also have a selection of resources across the UK that speakers can bring along to showcase our aid. So you can get hands on with our kit and experience it for yourself!

It was a mixture of informative and fun for the young people. The scouts really enjoyed it!
