10,000 steps a day too many or too few for you? You can choose any daily target to suit you, for instance 5,000 or 15,000.

Step towards ending the housing emergency

Thousands of people in Scotland face the fear and uncertainty of having nowhere safe to call home. This is shameful.

When you fundraise for Shelter Scotland, you're defending the right to a safe home. Last year we were able to give almost 17,000 people advice through our helpline and webchat services.

Together with your support, we're fighting to end the housing emergency. Because home is everything.

  • £290 could fund 10 calls to our helpline
