Crisis is the national charity for homeless people.
We are determined to end homelessness. We do it person by person and by influencing policies to ensure everyone has a place to call home.
Homelessness is devastating, leaving people vulnerable and isolated. Crisis offers ground breaking housing, health, education and employment services. We work with thousands of homeless people across the UK every year.
We are determined campaigners. We draw on our research, partnerships and years of experience of working directly with homeless people to deliver change and a vision to end homelessness for good.
Facts About Homelessness
People become and stay homeless for a whole range of complex and overlapping reasons and solving homelessness is about much more than putting a roof over people's heads. People face a number of issues in addition to, but often compounded by, their homelessness. The isolation and destructive nature of homelessness means that people find it difficult to access the help they need.
There is no national figure for how many people are homeless across the UK. This is because homelessness is recorded differently in each nation and because many homeless people do not show up in official statistics at all. For more information on figures in each nation please visit: http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/homeless-def-numbers.html
With your help we can end homelessness and change people’s lives for the better.

“I'm delighted that Musicians Against Homelessness will be supporting Crisis again this year with what promises to be an even bigger and better programme of gigs and events in the Autumn.
Homelessness remains an unsolved problem across the UK, so your help and support in what will be our 50th year, is much needed, and greatly appreciated.”
