Crisis opens new shop in Hammersmith

A new shop from the national homelessness charity, Crisis, has just opened in Hammersmith, to help support their work to end homelessness for good.

The shop, located at 108 King Street, opened its doors to customers on Thursday 31 March and sells a wide range of quality pre-loved goods, such as clothes, shoes, books, and homeware.

Crisis is calling on Hammersmith residents to help support the new shop and the fight to end homelessness by donating any items they no longer need, such as clothes, books, and homeware which can be sold to help raise vital funds to support people out of homelessness for good. Donations can be dropped off in store during opening hours.

Vital funds raised from items sold in the shop will help Crisis provide services to people experiencing homelessness across the country, including through its three Skylight centres across London - in Brent, East London, and Croydon.

The shop will aid Crisis in helping their clients to leave homelessness behind for good by helping them to find and apply for work, move into safe and stable accommodation, and get ongoing health and wellbeing support.

This comes at a time when homelessness across London is worryingly high, with the latest figures showing that 2,949 people were sleeping rough in London.

Stephen Newnham, Crisis Retail Operations Manager, said: “Hammersmith is Crisis’ first West London store, and we are excited to be opening a new shop here, with our mission to end homelessness at its heart.

“The shop will be a vibrant and creative shopping experience, servicing and engaging with Hammersmith’s community, all while helping generate vital funds to support our work at Crisis.

“The team in Hammersmith look forward to welcoming people to the shop, to browse, donate, volunteer, and support us in being there for those who need us now and in the future.”
