Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.
Since the coronavirus outbreak began, our society has pulled together to achieve extraordinary things. Thousands of people sleeping rough have been temporarily housed in a matter of weeks, and many more were prevented from becoming homeless due to emergency changes to legislation.
As we begin to emerge from lockdown, we now stand at a crossroads: we can build on the incredible progress that has been made by helping everyone move into a secure and permanent home; or we risk seeing thousands of people being forced into homelessness.
We are recruiting for a Philanthropy Manager to join our expanding Partnerships and Philanthropy team, to work alongside our inspirational supporters and beneficiaries to bring an end to homelessness in Great Britain.
