About Crisis at Christmas Edinburgh

We mobilise a unique volunteer effort each Christmas to bring warmth, companionship and vital services to people at one of the hardest times of the year, and offer a starting point out of homelessness. This is only made possible through the collective effort and generosity of thousands of volunteers, individuals, community organisations and companies who donate money, time, skills, goods and services.

About Crisis

In Scotland we provide education, training and support for homeless people from our Edinburgh centre.

We campaign to end homelessness in Scotland for good, and work across the country to improve access to rented accommodation for homeless people.

Together with our supporters, we fundraise in Scotland with events across the country.

Our Chief Executive, Jon Sparkes, is Chair of the Scottish Government’s Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group.
