We are delighted to be supporting Crisis At Christmas this year, by volunteering at their Christmas hotels.
2021 has continued to be difficult for lots of us due to the ongoing pandemic. More than ever, we have been reminded how much we depend on each other for connection, hope and support, and of the importance of a safe, secure home. Sadly, this Christmas thousands of people will be alone with nowhere to call home – and many will be experiencing their first without a secure and safe home this Christmas.
At Christmas and throughout the year, Crisis helps people directly out of homelessness and campaigns for the social changes needed to solve it altogether. Each Christmas Crisis mobilise a unique volunteering effort to provide warmth, companionship and vital services to people facing homelessness.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Crisis Christmas centres. Back in 1971, Crisis volunteers hosted Crisis' very first ‘Open Christmas’ with shelter and food for people experiencing homelessness. Fast forward to 2021, and volunteers are still as integral as ever to the work Crisis does during Christmas.
