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 works with people who are homeless and vulnerably housed.
... 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.
Recommendations for ending rough sleeping in Scotland are nearing completion
That sense of resolve sums up the atmosphere of the 2nd stakeholder workshop of the Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group which took place yesterday. Colleagues from across housing, charities, justice, health, councils, housing associations and faith groups gathered to hear about and input to the progress the Action Group has made so far on recommending solutions to the Scottish Government on ending rough sleeping in Scotland and transforming the use of temporary accommodation.
You can make a real difference to people experiencing homelessness at a critical time of year by volunteering for Crisis at Christmas. We have volunteer roles available in Edinburgh from 23 December-2 January.
Come along to 'Together we can...' and enjoy a wonderful afternoon at the Glasshouse Hotel Roof Top Garden, whilst supporting Crisis to end homelessness.
