Frequently asked questions

Crisis Christmas Party

What is a Crisis Christmas Party?

A Crisis Christmas Party is whatever seasonal festivities you were already planning but with a twist!
Whether it’s a classroom party, a knees up at home or an office do, we simply ask that you remember the people who are homeless and alone this Christmas by raising money to fund our vital work.
All you need to do is sign up for your free Party Kit which has all you need to add sparkle to your existing plans and raise money for homeless people.

What should I do at my party?

It’s completely up to you – it could simply be a gathering of any size, or you could have a cake sale, host a raffle or even put on a gig. Sign up for a Party Kit for lots more ideas.

Where should I host my party?

Wherever works best for you. It could be a party at your house, in the office where you work, at the school you teach at or attend or in the local community centre with your group or society.

Who should I invite?

It's completely up to you. This is your party and you can choose whether you want to invite your friends, family, workmates - or everyone! We are sure whoever attends will have a great time doing something amazing for homeless people.

I’m busy from 5 - 11 December. Can I hold my party in a different week?

Yes, of course – just pick a date as close to Crisis Christmas Party week as you can.

Can I send you my party photos?

Yes please! We’d love to see them - You can either email them to, post them on our Facebook page or share them on any social media platform using the hashtag #crisisxmasparty.

Where does my money go?

The donations collected at your Crisis Christmas Party will support Crisis’ year-round services for homeless people across the UK. However much you raise, whether it’s £5 or £500, you will help us transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

When do I pay in my money?

We would like to ask that you pay in your money as soon as you can so that we can use it to help homeless people out of the cold this winter.
