Crisis thanks Joe Lycett for his recent fundraising efforts

Matt Downie, Crisis Chief Executive, said: “We’re so grateful to Joe for his continued support for Crisis, and to the many thousands of people who have donated. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response.

“Joe, like many of us, knows that rough sleeping is not a lifestyle choice. It’s the consequence of policy choices, a failure to build the genuinely affordable social homes we so desperately need and a lack of investment in mental health services.

“The money raised will help us to continue supporting thousands of people experiencing the hardship and isolation of homelessness through our frontline services across Britain. It will also help us campaign vocally for the changes needed so that no-one is forced to sleep on the streets.”
