Give people change, with a gift in your will to Shelter Scotland

We’re in a housing emergency. Over a million lives are being ruined. And we’ll never properly solve it through small changes.

We need the type of change that will define a new era – one where millions of people can escape the damp and the cold and find a safe place to call home.

You can give people that change with a gift in your will.

We need big change – for families like Angela and Kardinell

Kardinell was just six when he and his Mum, Angela, were evicted from their private rental home. For over a year they were homeless, going from place to place, sleeping on sofas.

Homelessness took a horrendous toll on both of them. Kardinell fell behind at school and Angela spent sleepless nights struggling with the guilt of not being able to keep her son safe.

No family should have to go through that. But sadly, millions do.

But with a gift in your will, you could help give change to people like Kardinell and Angela. You could give us the strength to fight for more social homes, and greater rights for those at the sharp end of the housing emergency.

One day, your gift could help us end the housing crisis for good.
