Crisis Head Office volunteering

Research & Evaluation Intern

If we are to end homelessness for good, as well as providing practical support and services for homeless people, it is vital that we increase public and political understanding of homelessness, its causes and consequences and campaign for change. 

We commission and deliver research to better understand the causes and nature of homelessness and to find and make the case for innovative solutions. Using this and insights drawn from our services and clients, we work to influence national and local Government to make the changes necessary to improve the lives of homeless people and to prevent and end homelessness.

We are recruiting for a Research & Evaluation Intern to assist the research team in delivering Crisis’ programme of research.
