Providing safe places to live

We believe everyone should have a safe, secure, and decent place to call home, so we've set ourselves these goals:

A family in a shelter

Increasing access to safe and secure shelter for refugees, for those living in informal settlements and for homeless people.

A homeless woman sleeping on the ground

Reducing levels of insecure housing and homelessness for vulnerable groups, and improving the integration of refugees.

A family walking up a hill

Strengthening community-led movements to ensure everyone has a safe and secure route to settlement and shelter worldwide.
