December's Featured Charity is Crisis

December's Featured Charity is Crisis 1 December 2016

Crisis is the national charity for single homeless people. They are dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaign

Crisis was formed over 40 years ago because in one of the world's most affluent countries people were still living on the streets. Today we remain shocked by the existence of homelessness.

There are still too many people without a home of their own and, since 2010, all forms of homelessness have been on the rise. They are responding with a renewed commitment and action to end homelessness.

Over the next five years, Crisis plan to increase the scope of services, education, employment, housing and well-being and increase their reach by opening new Crisis Skylight centres in cities across the UK. Their strategy is designed to move people on, out of the instability and vulnerability of homelessness, to a stable and rewarding life. We will define, show and promote best practice in reaching stability and in sustaining recovery.
