Habitat for Humanity GB

We believe decent homes are the heartbeat of strong communities and so we also fight for land rights for women, upgrade urban slums and informal settlements, improve access to water and sanitation, and help communities become more resilient in the face of natural disasters.

Working in nearly 70 countries, we support the most marginalised and vulnerable in society. By working hand in hand with communities, since 1976 we have provided over 1 million homes and helped over 10 million people.

Founded 1995

  • Mission statement

    As a humanitarian aid organisation, our mission is to build a safe environment where families and communities can thrive.

    Access to decent housing is the foundation to achieving essential human rights such as: education, property, food and privacy. Home is the first step toward a future of opportunities and prosperity.

    We are constantly reaching out to those who need us most, to those who cannot reach out for themselves. Building a world where everyone has a safe place to call home will take all of us. By working together, we can all make a difference.

    One in five people across the world live in slums and substandard housing, locking them into a grinding cycle of poverty. This lack of housing negatively affects their health and well-being, educational prospects, and ability to make a living.

    Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a safe place to call home. We believe that a decent home helps to permanently break the cycle of poverty and allows families to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance.
