ShelterBox Visitor Centre

Our Visitor Centre has now closed

It was a pleasure to run a thriving and engaging visitor experience in Cornwall. Since opening in 2017, we welcomed over 20,000 visitors through the doors to learn about the issues people face after disaster and how emergency shelter is a vital part of recovery.

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making the centre a success, from our incredible volunteers and staff, to Rotary groups and local schools, businesses and other organisations. We think you are amazing.

During this pandemic, our priority must be to protect visitors, volunteers, and our staff as well as considering the safety of the families that we serve around the world. The closure of the visitor centre is one of a number of measures we are taking to make to ensure we are working safely and managing costs. Find out more here.

Thank you
