Up to 1,500 homeless and vulnerably housed people will visit the seven centres across London for the 35th Crisis Open Christmas this year. The centres will provide guests with a range of over 20 essential services, including full health checks.

Medical services are integral part of the Open Christmas as many guests may have had little or no contact with healthcare for some time. Crisis also need the help of volunteers with experience of dependency work within the sector.

June Blount, Crisis Healthcare Service Organiser said: ‘We would like to hear from a range of qualified people like general doctors and nurses, but also those who deal with mental health.’

To find out more about volunteering call 020 7426 3872, email Crisis or apply online.
