Shelter Northern Ireland was founded in 1980 and is a charity whose mission is to promote and facilitate the provision of sufficient decent and affordable homes to end long term homelessness and eliminate poor housing.

“We can no longer ignore the scale of homelessness in NI. Thousands of families and children continue to be denied their right to have a home of their own because we are all prepared to settle for homeless people living in a hostel or other temporary accommodation for long periods. Justice demands an end to long term homelessness, we all have a responsibility to act now” said Tony McQuillan, Shelter NI Director.
