Supporting Crisis this Christmas

Help to end homelessness

With £1 for every order throughout December 

We're proud to be supporting Crisis this year. Bob Books are donating £1 from every order throughout December towards the national charity helping to end homelessness.

Homelessness is an issue that is impossible to ignore, often misunderstood, and a cause which desperately needs everyone's attention and support.

We interviewed F, who wished to remain anonymous, a formerly homeless person who received help from Crisis. You can read his story here

About Crisis

Every bit of our work is integrated, and all contributes to our purpose of ending homelessness. The services we provide are carefully informed through our decades of experience of working with homeless people, and the research we've carried out over the years. Our research is driven by our knowledge from working side-by-side with homeless people every day. And this influences our campaigning for permanent change.

We work directly with thousands of homeless people every year. We provide vital help so that people can rebuild their lives and are supported out of homelessness for good. We offer one to one support, advice and courses for homeless people in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales. 

How we help someone depends on their individual needs and situation. It could be with finding a home and settling in, getting new skills and finding a job, or help with their health and wellbeing. We use research to find out how best to improve our services, but also to find wider solutions to homelessness. Together with homeless people and Crisis supporters, we campaign for the changes needed to end homelessness for good.

John Sparkes, Chief Executive of Crisis says:

‘Leading Crisis is a privilege that brings with it a huge sense of duty to support people and achieve change. I have a life-long commitment to tackling issues of inequality, and I think that homelessness existing in the UK in the 21st Century is one of the scandals of our time. If we don’t care enough about our fellow citizens to ensure everyone has a home we are getting something seriously wrong. My brilliant team at Crisis will do all that it can to change this.’
