Make History: Let's end homelessness

Let’s make this election the one where we decide to end homelessness.

The general election is taking place on 4 July. That means we have a huge opportunity to demand politicians make ending homelessness a society-wide mission for the next decade.

Over 11,000 of you already signed our open letter demanding that the next UK Government commit to ending homelessness.

Now, let’s show all parties that winning our votes means a commitment to ending all forms of homelessness.

Ask your local candidates: will they commit to ending homelessness if they're elected as your MP?

Why politicians need to act

All of us should have a safe, secure and affordable home. It’s the foundation for everything else in our lives.  

But for decades now, successive governments have failed in their duty to take the critical steps needed to end homelessness, and to build enough social housing. The impact has been devastating.


26% more people

Let’s make history this general election

Let’s make history. Just like the people that won votes for women or equal marriage, we’re coming together to demand that the general election on 4 July is one where we decide to end homelessness.  
An end to freezing nights on the streets. An end to sleeping on a different friend’s sofa every week. An end to months stuck in temporary accommodation with no way out.  

We need the next UK Government to make ending homelessness a society-wide mission for the next decade and below is how they can do this. 

Manoel's story

We all need a safe and secure home. But like thousands of us, Manoel is currently homeless in unsuitable temporary accommodation and it’s impacting his mental and physical health. This is his story.


The reality of homelessness

Andrea's story

”Where I have got myself out of homelessness, I want to help people that aren’t able to do that; to give them the support I never had.''

George's story

“I was first helped by Crisis about 17 years ago. I was rough sleeping at the time. They got me into a hostel. From there I moved into a room in a house, and then about a year later, I started fundraising.”
