Shelter Cymru is Wales’ people and homes charity. We work for people in housing need by providing free, independent, expert housing advice and we campaign to overcome the barriers which stand in the way of people in Wales having a decent, secure home. Last year, we helped over 18,000 people in Wales (1 in every 169 people) who were facing homelessness – 41% of the households we worked with included children. Homelessness can happen to anyone. No-one should face it alone.
