Crisis
"Everybody In"
1 min 47s
17 May 2017
UK Charities

To mark their fiftieth year, homeless charity Crisis are mobilising to make themselves obsolete before another fifty years have passed. This poignant film imagines what a world without homelessness could - and will - look like.

We watch the sun rise over London, visiting various spots across the city where we'd expect to see a homeless person bedding down - a park bench, an underpass, a shop doorway. But there's not a sleeping bag in sight because, as the voiceover explains, one day every person will be able to find their own space.

Performance poet Francesca Beard wrote the script, delivered brilliantly by Crisis member Lewis Ford. It's a unique approach for a brand to try and make themselves obsolete, something Crisis are determined to achieve with their 'Everybody In' campaign, and this beautiful film takes an equally unusual look at homelessness to help achieve that goal.

Crisis
"Christmas Crisis"
70s
14 Dec 2016
Rather than something guilt-inducing and dramatic, Crisis has gone for an upbeat, brightly coloured ad which we'd never expect to be about homelessness. It's a shrewd move. We're shown a series of typical festive annoyances before being brought back to earth and reminded that these irritations aren't crises - homelessness is.

Crisis
"No Way In"
60s
9 Aug 2010
Every entrance is an exit for the protagonist in this poignant film for the homeless charity. The really impressive thing about this piece is the way it reminds us that victims of homelessness are blameless for their plight and deserve our support.

Crisis
"Hidden Homeless"
30s
31 Dec 2006
A woman describes her plight as one of the hidden homeless - those who no longer live on the streets but nonetheless find themselves without a permanent home and cut adrift from society. Thanks to Crisis's education programmes and their assistance, she can get her life back on track.
