Remember Crisis in your Will

Right now, increasing numbers of people in Britain are experiencing homelessness. Sleeping on the street or park benches, spending the night in a car or moving from sofa to sofa. Everyone has the right to live with dignity and respect, but this isn't possible without access to decent and secure housing.

Every day we see the devastating impact being homeless has on individuals. And every year Crisis supports thousands of people, helping them rebuild their lives and take the first steps out of homelessness. None of this is possible without our supporters or the gifts left to us in Wills.


Leaving a gift


By remembering Crisis in your Will, you can make sure we will be standing side-by-side with homeless people in the future. Your gift could provide someone support with housing, education and health, enabling them to transform their lives and leave homelessness behind for good.

Including a gift to Crisis in your Will is straightforward and needn't be costly. Even if you have already written a Will, it's easy to add a gift.

Lots of people delay writing their Will, put off by the complicated legal jargon or the cost of seeing a solicitor. But a Will is vital for making sure your wishes are followed and the people close to you are taken care of. So to make things easier, on this page you can find the answers to lots of common questions and a way to write your Will for free.

Your questions answered

We always recommend that you speak to a solicitor or legal professional when you come to write or update your Will. To talk to someone about leaving a donation to Crisis, and to find out the difference it would make, you can call George Shelley on 020 7036 2642.

If you are speaking to your solicitor and would like to add a gift to Crisis to your Will, you need our Registered Charity number and address:

England & Wales: 1082947 Scotland: SC040094

Crisis, 66 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LT

The Law Society is the professional body for solicitors, you can find a solicitor on their website by using the Find a Solicitor tool, or calling them on 020 7320 5650.

When you're planning for the future, we understand that of course, your loved ones come first. One way you can make sure those closest to you are taken care of is by donating 1% of your estate to Crisis, and leaving the rest to your family and friends. A gift like this would make a big difference to the lives of homeless people in the future.

We have partnered with Farewill, the UK's top-rated Will writer to offer Crisis supporters the opportunity to write your Will online, for free. Go to Farewill to get started and use the voucher code Crisis100 to claim your free Will, or find out more about how it works.
