About us

We strive every day to give people struggling with bad housing or homelessness the help they need, through our advice, support and legal services.

We campaign relentlessly to achieve our vision of a safe, secure, affordable home for everyone.

Who we are and what we do

Our Shelter Scotland services, policy advocacy and campaign teams come together to create the best possible outcomes for people in housing need. We do this by providing practical support and advice to people experiencing bad housing or homelessness, by informing professionals, and by campaigning for legislative change.
