Introducing our chosen charity, Crisis.
Together we will end homelessness. Crisis is a charity close to everyones hearts, it supports the most vulnerable in our society. Homelessness isn't just about sleeping rough. It comes in many forms and can affect anyone. The numbers of homeless people are shocking but don't represent a problem that is too big to solve.
Through their 50-year history of pioneering research and supporting thousands of people out of homelessness, Crisis know more than ever about the causes of homelessness and what it will take to end it.
To end homelessness, we need to understand and change the factors which cause it and make it worse. Issues such as the availability of affordable housing, legislation and the benefits system are part of this. The work of Crisis with individuals drives their work to influence government, local authorities and housing providers' policy and practice to end homelessness.
We have chosen Crisis as our charity and donate annually to their Christmas appeal. If you would also like to donate you can do so by clicking the Crisis at Christmas badge here, donations are welcome all year round and it really does make a difference.
