The ShelterBox Visitor Centre - Find out how a Cornish charity is transforming despair into hope


The ShelterBox disaster relief visitor centre is a new attraction in the heart of Truro and an inspiring day out. Discover our story and find out how we provide emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster.

You can try the Disaster Challenge with your family, pack one of our famous green ShelterBoxes, peek inside tents and shelters, decide what you would save if disaster threatened your home, and find out what it takes to move aid quickly to a disaster zone. ShelterBox is the perfect escape from a rainy Cornish day.
