People who have low-paying jobs, or an unexpected fall in income after redundancy or illness, are becoming homeless because support with housing costs has fallen way below rising rents across most of Britain.
A properly funded safety net is critical to stabilising people’s homes and preventing homelessness.
Since 1967 Crisis has campaigned for an end to homelessness. But we know we can’t do it on our own. We use research and evidence from services to uncover problems and to develop solutions. We work with thousands of campaigners, homeless people, allies and influencers to get the lasting change we need to end homelessness.
Sometimes our campaigning is very public and sometimes we make the case for change behind the scenes. We campaign on a range of issues including benefits and employment, health and wellbeing, housing, law and rights, and rough sleeping. We campaign to change policy in Westminster, devolved administrations, city regions and local councils.
And we need your help.

Last year Crisis published Everybody In, a ground-breaking piece of work which sets out a long-term strategy for UK Governments to end homelessness. Central to this plan is the urgent need for us to build dramatically more social housing.
Your support means a lot to Crisis. Together we can do amazing things to end homelessness and transform lives.
