How raising your run for us makes a difference

Last year there were 309,349 calls to our helplines.

But there are many more people who don’t know where to turn for help. People living in unsafe or unfit housing. People with no permanent place to live.

The more you raise, the more people we can help. Not just with advice and support, but also by fighting for change. Because everyone has the right to a secure and safe place to live – somewhere to call home.
