We hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe during these difficult times. Due to government guidelines we are currently working from home with limited access to our offices. This may cause a delay when processing your kind donations and responding to queries. Thank you for bearing with us.
With over 20 years of experience, we are experts in emergency shelter after disaster. We often work in places that others don’t, making sure that we reach families who need support to take the next step in resuming their livelihoods.
From Cameroon to Syria, all the way to the Philippines and the Caribbean, we have provided shelter to over 1.5 million people so far. In 2020, the year that marks our 20th birthday, your support has been more valuable than ever.
Despite the challenges, we have been working nonstop all over the world, being part of the global effort to slow the spread of coronavirus. Thanks to your incredible support and the help of our partners worldwide, we have provided shelter to over 150,000 people in 2020 so far.
We won’t stop until we see a world where no family goes without shelter after disaster. Will you help us?
With the help of amazing supporters like you, we’re working hard to provide emergency shelter for vulnerable families around the world who have lost their homes after disaster.

By giving ShelterBox a general donation, you are helping us use your money to make the most difference to families in desperate need of shelter.
Around 71p of every pound raised is used to give families a place to call home after disaster. The remaining 29p is invested to raise future vital funds so we can help more families around the world in desperate need of emergency shelter.
We work this out in the same way as many charities in the UK, using financial results from the last three years to make sure events in any single year don’t have a distorting effect. Find out more about how we spend your money.
