Homelessness in Great BritaIN

We all deserve a safe, stable place to live. But we are not protecting this basic human need for 236,000 people in Britain experiencing the worst forms of homelessness. Homelessness is devastating, dangerous and isolating. On average, people sleeping on the street are 17 times more likely to have been victims of violence, are 9 times more likely to commit suicide and have a life expectancy of just 47 years old. More than one in three people sleeping rough have been deliberately hit or kicked or experienced some other form of violence whilst homeless.

How do Crisis helP?

Crisis work directly with thousands of homeless people every year, providing vital help so that people can rebuild their lives and are supported out of homelessness for good. Crisis offer one to one support, advice and courses for homeless people in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales. How Crisis 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. Together with homeless people and Crisis supporters, they campaign for the changes needed to end homelessness for good.
