Shelter at Tramlines Festival 2016

Tramlines is thrilled to have partnered with Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity.

Shelter's team will be spending the weekend at the Folk Forest, where they'll be putting on a variety of activities. These will include an immersive virtual reality experience, a drawing competition for children, and an installation that challenges people to think about what home means to them.

Shelter has a long-standing connection to Sheffield, which is the home of its free, national helpline, and we’re delighted to be able to support their vital work helping millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through advice, support, and legal services.

Since 1966, Shelter has been a powerful voice for people facing bad housing and homelessness. And, in their 50th year, they're commit to continuing their work until we all have a place to call home.

More information on Shelter's essential work:

Shelter's free, national helpline is open all year round to offer expert housing advice to anyone struggling with issues related to housing and homelessness - no matter what their situation. It is manned by expert housing advisers who will listen to, and support, clients, and can help them take action or negotiate on their behalf.

Just one call to the Shelter helpline can be the difference between somebody losing their home and keeping it.

In 2014/15, Shelter helped 99,945 people through their helpline in England.

You can call Shelter's free, national helpline on 0808 800 4444.
