Objectives

We work directly with thousands of homeless people every year. We provide vital help so that people can rebuild their lives and are supported out of homelessness for good. We offer one to one support, advice and courses for homeless people in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales. How we help someone depends on their individual needs and situation. It could be with finding a home and settling in, getting new skills and finding a job, or help with their health and wellbeing. We use research to find out how best to improve our services, but also to find wider solutions to homelessness. Together with homeless people and Crisis supporters, we campaign for the changes needed to end homelessness for good.

Activities

Our services

We support people out of homelessness for good. We do this through education, training and support with housing, employment and health. We offer one to one support, advice and courses for homeless people in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales.

Housing

We help homeless people find and keep a rented home. We do this by working with landlords to ensure a supply of places to live, and giving homeless people the tools and knowledge they need to rent successfully. 

Our Housing resource centre provides information and training for housing professionals. The Help to Rent database lists private sector renting schemes across the UK. 

Research and campaigning 

We carry out pioneering research into the causes and consequences of homelessness, and campaign for the changes needed to end it for everyone, for good. 

The plan to end homelessness

Working with others, we're producing a plan to end homelessness once and for all.
