Our latest success story follows a man named Frank. Frank was a living on the street, living rough and was a heavy drinker. Frank started attending some of Crossovers’ evening meals but disappeared for a while. Later he turned and started to come more regularly. So much so that the team were able to work alongside him.
Through the work of the Crossover team, along with Franks’ hard work – he now holds a part time job as a retail assistant and sells The Big Issue seller to make up the time. Through the hard work, Frank was able to raise funds for a deposit and first months rental on a flat in Hove.
Frank’s entire living situation and lifestyle has changed. We are so pleased to have been a part of his journey. His story, along with others like him, are why we do what we do.

In connection with Lions charity, Crossover was asked to become the adopted charity for the new young persons branch of their charity – The LEO Club.
The launch took place on the 2nd of July and took place at Portslade Academy, celebrating towards the end of the term with Kitty providing the food.
The ongoing partnership with the Leo Club will see Sixth Form Students volunteer in the Crossover Charity shop to gain work experience whilst helping to contribute to the community that they are a part of.
A massive thanks for everyone who was involved and who helped! We have a blast, and can’t wait for a fantastic future ahead.
In connection with a local youth charity, Kitty was able to provide food for a local youth event in Moulscombe. Including a climbing wall and lots of fun – the event was a great success while also helping to raise funds for the Crossover projects.
In connection with the local Kidz Klub, Crossover’s very own Kitty was featured to provide food for the children as well as raise awareness of the work that Crossover do as well as the need to help out those in need.
This comes in a long line of children’s work that Crossover has been involved in during the Spring of 2015. Now involved in multiple school works, Crossover is helping children understand the importance of giving to those in need. You can read more about it in the new School Works section of the website.
