Help me Fundraise for CRISIS at Christmas

This year I will be volunteering at Crisis at Christmas, where ten centres will open across  London between 23 and 30 December offering vital companionship, hot meals and warmth and over 20 vital services.

CRISIS will welcome over 3,000 homeless people to our ten centres this Christmas and any sponsorship raised could help.

Just £21.84 is enough to provide a place for a homeless person at Crisis at Christmas, where they can get:

Three nutritious means a day and a bed if they need it

Housing and job advice and access to year-round services

Help to leave homelessness behind for good

Let’s make this our best Crisis at Christmas.  With your support, it’s possible.

Thank you!!

Some Figures:

The average life expectancy for a homeless man in the UK is 47 years and 43 years for a homeless woman.

In London, former armed forces personnel make up over 10% of homeless individuals.

Homeless people are more than nine times more likely to commit suicide than the general population.

In 2011, 48,510 households were accepted as homeless by local authorities across England, including 69,460 children and this number is estimated to have increased by 80% in the past three years.
