What We Do

Do you have what it takes to join our Response Team?

The people behind ShelterBox

When disaster strikes, ShelterBox Response Teams play a crucial role in helping vulnerable families recover.

Following a natural disaster or conflict, our Response Team Volunteers leave their own families to travel around the world and deliver shelter, tools and other essential items to the families who need them most.

The conditions can be very challenging. It can be physically and mentally demanding. Becoming a response team member is a huge responsibility, but it can also be incredibly rewarding.

How prepared would you be in a disaster? Would you take the lead, make a plan, or tackle the challenge head on? 

Our response teams members come from all walks of life. But one thing they have in common is that they can all make good decisions under pressure, in very challenging environments.

They work tirelessly, climbing mountains, crossing rivers and navigating their way through customs procedures – all to deliver aid to families who have lost their homes.
