We should all have a safe place to call home

Homelessness is a problem that affects all of us in society, but we can all play our part in solving it.

We need the support of young people across Britain, because we know that it is only by working together that we can end homelessness.

On this page, you'll find activities, videos and information to understand more about the causes of homelessness, ways it can be solved, and how you can get involved in Crisis' work to end it for good.

The activities are covid-secure and safe to do in your home.

Scouts are helping to end homelessness

At Crisis we are excited to be supporting Scouts’ ‘A Million Hands’ programme, which empowers young people to make a difference in their communities. 

Scouts are taking action that will have an impact on ending homelessness and showing that the issue is solvable with the right policies in place.

Scouts are getting involved in a range of ways - engaging with their local communities to combat stereotypes around rough sleeping; raising awareness of the true picture of homelessness; highlighting homelessness as a problem which shouldn’t exist in our society, and having conversations for change with their Scouts groups and local decision makers to discuss the importance of ending homelessness.

We’re excited to help Scouts to create change in their communities. If you’re a Scout leader and want to find resources to use with your young people, visit the Scouts website. If you’d like to get involved or find out more about our partnership, email us at youth@crisis.org.uk.
