All Shelter Centre activities are designed and maintained so that the maximum number of sector stakeholders participate in their development and benefit from their outputs.

Many activities are funded through a programme with DFID, 2006–2011, while others are funded bilaterally or multi-laterally.

Shelter Centre partners in the sector include United Nations bodies, the Red Cross Movement, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, academic and research groups, as well as donors.

As a sector support NGO, Shelter Centre builds collaboration, consensus and capacity through developing and maintaining:

  • strategic or policy guidelines;
  • technical guidelines;
  • technical training;
  • community of practice services; and
  • the global forum for the sector.
