Through your place of worship

The support of religious organisations from all faiths plays a vital part in our work transforming the lives of homeless people. 

Please support Crisis so we can enable others to take positive steps towards a fresh start

Christmas guest Patrick This Crisis at Christmas, the outreach team found Patrick, who had been sleeping rough.  The trouble first began when his wife died. He then suffered a number of other bereavements and the emotional stress took its toll.

"I was made aware by all the people on the Crisis network of the facilities here that have been very good. The medical facilities have been wonderful... If it weren't for Crisis at Christmas I would probably just be walking, using public facilities somewhere - a park or something like that."

Patrick had previously been a self-employed IT professional and now hopes to return to the IT industry.  

What your donation could do

Please ask your church to support Crisis so we can enable others to take positive steps towards a fresh start and access a wide range of services, just as Patrick did at Christmas.

£100: would pay for the essential learning materials and examination costs of studying for two homeless people to sit a GCSE in either English or Mathematics.

£250: this can help someone put a roof over their head, giving them support to find somewhere to call home, then move in and cope with having a place of their own.

£500: would help two disadvantaged homeless people to qualify in City and Guilds Level 2 Cycle Maintenance & Cycle Trainer.

£1,000: could help 10 people gain a vocational qualification.
