Have your say on our plan to end homelessness

Share your expertise and help shape our national plan for action

As part of Crisis’ 50th anniversary year, we’re developing a plan to end homelessness in Britain. But we can’t do it alone.

If you have lived experience of homelessness, work on the front line, in policy or a related field like housing, criminal justice, education, welfare or health, here's how you can have your say:

1. Answer our call for evidence on SurveyMonkey or, alternatively you can download a Word document and submit to policy@crisis.org.uk

2. Come to a themed event for policy experts and practitioners (scroll down to see events list and to sign up)

3. Come to a creative workshop if you have experience of homelessness or help us organise one for your clients (dates TBC, email policy@crisis.org.uk for more information)

More information is available in our Have Your Say leaflet

The plan we develop together will be published in Spring 2018, as we build a groundswell of support for ending homelessness – a movement to put our plan into action.
