This Christmas, let’s stand with people facing homelessness

Every year Crisis at Christmas opens its doors to people who are homeless. Offering much needed warmth, healthcare, food and company. Discover how you can support our Christmas appeal today.

What is Crisis at Christmas?

Right now, thousands of people at the sharp end of poverty are at risk of being pushed into homelessness. People are being forced into making unthinkable choices between eating, heating or keeping a roof over their head. 


Every year Crisis at Christmas opens its doors to people who are facing homelessness at Christmas. As a national charity we offer much needed warmth, healthcare, food and company to people experiencing homelessness across the UK. 


Everyone who comes to Crisis is a valued individual, treated with respect, listened to and cared for – and it’s the start of specialist support that lasts all year round. From skills training to help with employment, people get the support they need to leave homelessness behind and find a safe and secure home. And they’ll have someone standing by their side for as long as it takes.
