We love volunteers

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with Crisis mission to end homelessness. It’s also a chance to learn something new, develop existing skills and be part of a diverse and vibrant team!

If you would like to volunteer and can spare as little as 6 hours per week, we would love to hear from you.

Volunteering positions

We love donations

Trading in the heart of Mare Street, Shop from Crisis, Hackney welcome donations of pre-loved clothing, books, media and electrical items – just drop them into the shop during opening hours.

Due to the boutique size of the shop we are not usually able to accept furniture – but our Finsbury Park shop can!
