The Salvation Army is a worldwide evangelical Christian church. Our mission is based on our faith in Jesus Christ who wants everyone to experience life in all its fullness.
That is why, here in the UK and Ireland, we put our faith into action by offering practical help for people without discrimination, standing up for those who are vulnerable, fighting against injustice and encouraging people to deepen their relationship with God. The services we offer are diverse and responsive to the realities of life in the communities we serve.
We are the national charity for homeless people. We help people directly out of homelessness and campaign for the changes needed to solve it altogether.
Shelter is a registered charity that campaigns to end homelessness and bad housing in Great Britain. It gives advice, information and advocacy to people in need, and tackles the root causes of bad housing by lobbying government and local authorities for new laws and policies to improve the lives of homeless and badly housed people. It works in partnership with Shelter Cymru in Wales and the Housing Rights Service in Northern Ireland. The charity was founded in 1966 and raised 60.9 million pounds in 2016/17.
