A corporate partner of Shelter Scotland
We're proud to have been nominated as one of HSBC UK’s national charity partners since 2018. Together we’ve made a meaningful impact through fundraising and better access to banking for people with no fixed address.
HSBC UK has committed to a new multi-year partnership with Shelter and Shelter Scotland. We’ll support people and communities during the cost of living crisis and help break the vicious circle of homelessness.
Record high rents and a lack of genuinely affordable social homes means millions of people are struggling to cope with rising living costs. In Scotland, 1.5 million people are denied a safe, stable home.
The partnership builds on the work of HSBC UK’s industry-leading ‘No Fixed Address’ service. This has helped over 4,600 people without a fixed home address to open a bank account and rebuild their lives after experiencing homelessness.
With HSBC UK’s additional support, Shelter and Shelter Scotland will be able to help over a million people at risk of losing their home during the cost of living crisis, and build financial resilience in local communities to help prevent homelessness.
Together with HSBC UK, we’ve already helped thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness to access a bank account and rebuild their lives through our Breaking the Cycle programme. But our ambition is to do more to stop people from becoming homeless in the first place.
That’s why we’re thrilled to be deepening our partnership with HSBC UK so that we can reach more people at risk of losing their homes and work with communities before they reach crisis point.
