Campaign

We campaign for the changes needed to end homelessness for good.

Because
homelessness
shouldn’t happen
to anyone

Our campaigning

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.

When the Chancellor delivered his Budget yesterday we were waiting with baited breath to see if there would be anything on homelessness. The Huffington Post had trailed that there might be a small amount of cash but nothing big. But we were not disappointed. The Chancellor had listened to our supporters and the many politicians who called for more action to tackle homelessness, and in particular for investment in Help to Rent projects to support homeless people move into and sustain tenancies in the private rented sector.
