Stay Awake with Crisis

24 hours, no sleep.
Who will you become?

We won’t rest until homelessness is ended.

Every day, nearly 200,000 households across Great Britain go without the safety or comfort of their own home. Vital funds are needed to tackle the causes of homelessness and get people the help they need quickly. Join us as we Stay Awake for 24 hours and fundraise.

Join us over the May Bank Holiday for our first Stay Awake weekend, or pick a date that suits you.
