Crisis was shocked into existence over forty years ago by the revelation that in one of the world’s most affluent countries people were still living on the streets. Today we remain shocked by the existence of homelessness. Although there are fewer rough sleepers and hostels are vastly improved places, there are still too many people without a home of their own. We are responding with a renewed commitment and action to end homelessness.
Our plans for the next five years are ambitious. We plan to increase the scope of our services, education, employment, housing and well-being and increase our reach by opening new Crisis Skylight centres in cities across the UK. Our strategy is designed to move people on, out of the instability and vulnerability of homelessness, to a stable and rewarding life. We will define, show and promote best practice in reaching stability and in sustaining recovery.
