Working with Crisis
In 21st century Britain everybody should have a place to live, but homelessness is still a major problem.
People can lose their homes for a variety of reasons. Rising pressure from high rents and low pay, or a sudden life event like losing a job or family breakdown, can quickly force people into homelessness. But it doesn’t need to be like this.
We can end homelessness for good. This doesn’t mean that no-one will ever lose their home again, but that everyone facing homelessness gets the help they need quickly.
Crisis works directly with thousands of people who are homeless or facing homelessness every year.
We provide vital help so that people can rebuild their lives and be supported out of homelessness for good. We offer one to one support, advice and courses for people who are homeless or facing homelessness in 11 areas across England, Scotland and Wales, including in Croydon.
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.Make a donation

“Our Croydon Skylight centre is in the heart of the borough, where we offer vital help with housing, jobs, health and wellbeing to help people facing homelessness.
We’re delighted to be the charity partner for Croydon Stands Tall and look forward to seeing how the project develops and brings the community together.
