We’ve teamed up with a host of celebrities including Tom Hardy, Emma Thompson, Ellie Goulding, Jodie Whittaker and Richard Gere to call for an end to homelessness in Great Britain.
The poem ‘If Everybody Is In’ by Stefan, Crisis’ Poet in Residence aka Neanderthal Bard, calls for an end to homelessness for good.
Watch this powerful film with 20 celebrities reading the poem alongside Stefan and two Crisis members.
We all deserve a safe, stable place to live. But more than 170,000 families and individuals across Britain are experiencing the worst forms of homelessness right now. It doesn’t need to be this way. Other parts of the world are taking huge strides towards ending homelessness, and we can do the same here.
Ending homelessness doesn’t mean that no-one will ever lose their home again, but that everyone facing homelessness gets the help they need quickly. It means making sure we all have a place to live, and together doing everything we can to stop people from losing their homes in the first place.
We know we can end homelessness once and for all. We’ve published a plan showing the solutions that can end homelessness in Wales, Scotland and England. But we need Everybody In to make it happen. Celebrities including Tom Hardy, Emma Thompson, Ellie Goulding, Jodie Whittaker and Richard Gere are in - are you?
Stand against homelessness by joining our Everybody In campaign.

I first realised I was gay when I was about fourteen. I didn’t have an easy time coming out. It led to me shutting that side of me away for a very long time... I think just the build-up of all of that has led to so many issues that have led to me becoming homeless.Read Owen's story now
