Make it Crisis this Christmas

Get together to celebrate Christmas and help end homelessness.

Make it Crisis this Christmas - and together we'll end homelessness.

Whether it's a carol concert, Christmas party or a festive meal, you can turn it into a fundraiser to reserve places for homeless people at Crisis at Christmas.

At 15 Crisis at Christmas centres, we provide people with food, healthcare and advice on housing and employment. Each place you reserve could be someone's first step towards leaving homelessness behind for good. Whether you already have an event planned or are organising something new, sign up to Make it Crisis this Christmas and we'll send you a free kit to help make your event a success.

“Crisis have been brilliant. I can't say enough good things.”

Samantha has a life that she wouldn't wish on anyone. After growing up in care and being sexually abused, she struggled with depression and ended up in an abusive relationship. When she finally fled, she found herself homeless.

Samantha arrived at Crisis at Christmas depressed and desperate - and then she discovered all that Crisis had to offer.

Almost straight away, Samantha felt her life start to change, and over the coming year, Crisis helped her gain confidence and new skills. Now Samantha is full of hope. "Crisis has been brilliant" she says "I've had a brilliant support worker and I can't say enough good things. I'm going to start looking for work. I'm excited to see where next I end up on my journey through life".

Make it Crisis this Christmas and every £28.18 you raise could give advice, food and safety, plus a whole new start to someone like Samantha.

Each £28.18 you raise reserves a place at Crisis at Christmas for someone who’s homeless.

Crisis at Christmas can be the first step out of homelessness. The funds you raise will enable us to welcome more guests to our life-changing centres. In 15 Crisis at Christmas centres guests will receive healthcare, housing and employment advice, good food and access to Crisis' year-round services to help them leave homelessness behind in the new year.
