Crisis is the national charity for homeless people

Each year, we open centres across the UK, to bring food, accommodation, vital services and well being activities to over 4,000 homeless people at one of the hardest times of the year, and offer a starting point out of homelessness.   

Homelessness is a stressful, lonely and often traumatic experience which has a major impact on both mental and physical health – the average age of death for the homeless population is just 45.

Right now we are looking for volunteer podiatrists and students in our London centres over Christmas. Rough sleeping can take a real toll on the feet of many of our guests. The Podiatry Service provides a range of treatments and footcare advice for our guests.

Our centres are open 24- 29 December and are spread across 9 different locations across London. Volunteers are required to sign up to a minimum of 2 sessions and the shift times run from 9am till 6pm.  You can find out more information about the role here.

If you are a qualified podiatrist and wish to help vulnerable people then we want to hear from you!

To register as a volunteer, please follow the link and fill out the volunteer registration form for a Health care Professional. As you follow the application you can choose your shift dates and attach your HCPC number.

If you have any questions please email or call our volunteering hotline on 0300 636 1000 and we will be happy to help.

We look forward to seeing you at Christmas.
