CRASH is the construction and property industrys charity for homeless men and women. It is a unique, practical charity which works to address issues of homelessness by harnessing the skills, products and goodwill of the construction and property industry.
In partnership with industry, CRASH works to improve emergency night shelters, hostels, day centres, and move-on accommodation for frontline homelessness agencies who work directly with homeless people.
CRASH does this in three ways:
1. Providing pro-bono professional expertise
2. Sourcing building materials free of charge from its patron and supporting companies
3. Awarding cash grants.
Barbour Product Search believes CRASH epitomises the sectors professionalism, ingenuity and innovation, effectively channeling the skills at the heart of the industry to make a social difference. This is why we are working with CRASH as an official charity partner.
The focus of the charity has always been to develop effective partnerships with the industry and encourage companies within the sector to use the skills they have to help those less fortunate. This structure remains as efficient and effective today as it was more than two decades ago and is one of the key reasons UBM Live Built Environment has chosen CRASH as their charity partner.
