Crisis in Scotland

We provide direct support for homeless people and influence policy to help end homelessness in Scotland.

Together we will end homelessness in Scotland

In Scotland we provide education, training and support for homeless people from our Edinburgh centre.

We campaign to end homelessness in Scotland for good, and work across the country to improve access to rented accommodation for homeless people.

Together with our supporters, we fundraise in Scotland with events across the country.

Our Chief Executive, Jon Sparkes, is Chair of the Scottish Government’s Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group.

Crisis Skylight Edinburgh

Crisis Skylight Edinburgh works with people who are homeless and vulnerably housed. 

 

Kevin's story
... I came to Crisis and I started to take part in music classes and getting qualifications in IT and Communications. Crisis was something to get up for and look forward to. I suddenly had a purpose.


At Crisis Skylight Edinburgh we offer help to support people in their journey out of homelessness and towards independence.
