Support us via People's Postcode Lottery

 When you play People's Postcode Lottery, you're supporting our work to end homelessness.

To date, players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised nearly £6 million to help end homelessness. See how this incredible support is helping to change lives across the country:

This incredible support helps to fund year-round work and services at our 11 Crisis Skylight centres across Britain. Here, we provide one-to-one coaching and advice with housing, education, employment and health to help people leave homelessness behind. Last year we supported more than 11,000 people on their journeys out of homelessness.

Watch Sharon’s story to see how she worked with her Crisis coach Jeanne-Marie to rebuild her confidence, move into a home and secure employment:

During the coronavirus outbreak, PPL players have helped to fund Crisis’ emergency grants scheme, which has offered financial support to smaller local organisations supporting people facing homelessness. Community Infosource was one of the recipients of a Crisis grant, and our Chief Executive, Jon Sparkes, spoke to Shafiq from the organisation to find out more about the impact of this support:
