About Us
ShelterBox is constantly evolving as a charity - see some highlights from our development, collaborations and analyses below.

Our aid

At ShelterBox we are always looking for ways to improve our aid. We use beneficiary feedback to make changes to our aid in order to provide the best products possible. We are always looking to improve the quality of our aid, as we are dedicated to delivering the best aid package that represents value for money while being accountable to our supporters, partners and every person who receives support from ShelterBox.
 
LuminAid lights replaced our previous solar lights as they provide a longer lasting, brighter light and are both more compact and weigh less. This is just one example of how ShelterBoxes are being updated to ensure we offer the best aid possible. ShelterBox is also expanding the type of aid we deploy, such as the recent Shelter kits, to ensure we can provide the best options for a wide range of situations. This aid innovation makes ShelterBox one of the leaders in providing humanitarian shelter. 
 
Partnerships
 
Collaboration has always been important in our disaster relief work with various other organisations including aid agencies, government bodies, Rotary, local communities, logistics companies and airlines.

Working together helps us make a difference to more families in need, assisting them with rebuilding their lives more efficiently and effectively.

Monitoring and Evaluation
 
We firmly believe that our work is never finished and we are committed to measuring and evaluating the impact our aid has by listening to the needs of the people that we are helping.
 
Our work is evaluated through means such as beneficiary participatory video and fast, streamlined response volunteer feedback.
 
 
Knowledge and experience
 
As we grow and respond to a wider range of disasters and humanitarian crises, we continue to gain experience of the sector as a whole.
 
By participating in processes such as shelter clusters, where agencies come together to coordinate responses to major disasters, we are able to make more informed choices about the aid we send and how to provide it in the most appropriate way.
