We could not change so many lives without the hard work and commitment of our volunteers.
Over 10,000 people give their time, energy and skills to help deliver our services, campaign, fundraise and provide administrative and IT support.
What’s on offer
We encourage applications from all sections of the community particularly those with personal or previous experience of homelessness.
New volunteer roles come up regularly so don’t be discouraged if the role you want is not currently available.

Volunteering with Crisis at Christmas
Crisis at Christmas 2012 was one of our most successful ever, with 3,400 guests visiting our centres. All our residential centres were completely full and day centres were very busy throughout the whole week.
Medical services, including dentists, doctors and physiotherapists were in much demand by guests across all the nine London centres, and in our Newcastle centre which was open Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Registration to volunteer for Crisis at Christmas 2013 will open in early October 2013.

Seventy volunteers have taken to Facebook to share their thoughts and experiences of Crisis at Christmas 2012.
Volunteers have a significant impact on Crisis and the services it is able to deliver to homeless people. Over 10,000 volunteers are involved in the organisation every year, contributing well over a quarter of a million (266,860) hours of their time.
