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

Our innovative education, employment, housing and well-being services address individual needs and help homeless people to transform their lives. We measure our success and can demonstrate tangible results and value for money.

We are determined campaigners, working to prevent people from becoming homeless and advocating solutions informed by research and our direct experience.

We have ambitious plans for the future and are committed to help more people in more places across the UK. We know we won’t end homelessness overnight or on our own. But we take a lead, collaborate with others and together make change happen.

Crisis has provided a warm, safe and caring place for thousands of homeless people at Christmas for over 40 years. During Christmas, our guests receive the best help, advice, support, services, food, entertainment and company that we can find. Though Crisis offers these life changing services year round, which means that our work doesn’t stop when Christmas is over.

In fact, the real work starts when our guests become Crisis members by enrolling at one of our Skylight centres. They can then access education, employment, housing and wellbeing services to help them get their lives back on track for good.

You can make it your resolution to leave a gift to Crisis in your Will and help us open more Crisis Skylight Centres across the UK, enabling more people to turn their lives around for good. Homelessness is rising, rough sleeping rose by 23% across the U.K last year, our work is more vital than ever and you can make a lasting difference to our efforts.

Leaving a gift to Crisis in your Will can be your Gift of a Lifetime that gives others the opportunity to get back on their feet and put homelessness behind them for good. Your life’s work can live on and you can be remembered for the help that you gave those who need help the most.

Gifts of all sizes can make a real difference and you can choose to leave us a percentage of the remainder of your estate after providing for your loved ones. If you have an existing Will you can simply add a Codicil to express your new wishes. Please ask your solicitor for details.

If now is a good time for you to be thinking about leaving a gift to Crisis in your Will and you would like more information, call Rob Green direct on 020 7036 2875 or email if you have any questions.
