CRISIS AT CHRISTMAS
We like to do our bit for homeless charities, whether it’s donating replaced pillows and towels, or offering rooms for important causes.
Rough sleeping has more than doubled in the last six years in London and one charity particularly stands out for us: Crisis.
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. Their team help people directly out of homelessness and every year work side by side with thousands of people, to help them rebuild their lives and leave homelessness behind for good.
Alongside the 12,000 volunteers, Crisis welcome thousands of guests into centres across Britain offering support and advice on health, housing, employment, benefits as well as food, clothing and company for the festive period. For many, the centres offers a chance to relax, regain confidence and plan for the future in a supportive environment, away from the immediate hardships of homelessness.
For the seventh year running, we’re supporting Crisis at Christmas by donating 10 suites free-of-charge to volunteers. Being centrally located, our rooms at The Chronicle, The Rosebery and Templeton Place become comfortable homes for those doing such an important job over the festive period.
Every day we see the devastating impact homelessness has on people’s lives. Crisis mobilise a huge volunteer effort each Christmas to bring warmth, companionship and vital services to people during one of the toughest periods of the year.
Meet the team behind Crisis at Christmas.
We’ve just been told by the team at Crisis that the campaign is busier than ever.
