Everyone in our society should have a safe and secure home.

But right now, many people are denied this basic human need. Through our frontline services and research, we know a future without homelessness is possible– we’ve just got to take the right steps.

That’s why we’re asking you to Step forward to end homelessness, to help support our services and campaigning works.

How to take part

Choose a target

How far will you go? Our suggested step targets represent key facts from our research that has informed the steps we must take to end homelessness. Or you can set your own goal.

Start your challenge

During March, take as many steps towards your target as you can, in whichever way best suits you. Walk, run, skip, dance, moon walk or wheel your target distance– use your imagination to think about all the creative ways you could reach your goal!

Ask for sponsorship

Ask your friends and family to sponsor you to reach your £150 fundraising goal and encourage them to join you too. We know the best approach to ending homelessness is to all step forward together.

There are plenty of opportunities to build the challenge into your daily life. You can make up your steps at home or as part of a daily exercise routine. This is a step-challenge that fits in with your life, while helping to end homelessness. 

Jana's story

The funds you raise will help people like Jana. After her mother died, Jana was constantly moving around and was eventually sofa surfing. Her health declined and she couldn’t work and got into debt. The local council helped Jana and placed her into a hostel, but unfortunately she had to leave her beloved dogs behind. Crisis helped when she was in the hostel and Jana took part in a number of courses including arts and crafts and a Renting Ready course which helped prepare her when moving into her own place. It was during the first lockdown in 2020 when Jana got the keys to her own flat and Crisis provided support with furniture and money management.
