Frederico's story

“I couldn’t recommend Crisis more. If you can give a little bit back to the community, just give it a go.”


"Crisis is a charity I hold very close to my heart. Twenty-odd years ago, I was forced to sleep rough in the streets, so I know exactly what it feels like. Since then, I’ve always wanted to give back to the community. If I can contribute to changing someone's life, why not?  

"I started in the Peckham shop back in January and absolutely love it. The warmth from the public, how the team has welcomed me with such kindness, the vibe… even when I’m absolutely shattered after fifty hours of work, I’m still fully committed to giving something to those in need. 

"But it’s not just me, and not just a charity or a government – it takes a whole community to change and bring homelessness rates down. 

"Our customers have a great understanding of what we’re doing and why they’re supporting the charity. If you go to any of the Crisis stores, you can expect a great experience." 

By sharing stories we can change attitudes and build a movement for permanent, positive change. Stand against homelessness and help us end it for good.
