Crisis in Wales

We provide one to one support for homeless people in South Wales, and are developing long-term solutions to end homelessness for good.

Together we will end homelessness in Wales

In Wales our team in Swansea provides education, training and support for homeless people in South Wales.

We carry out research to understand homelessness in Wales and campaign for the changes needed to end it for good.

During our 50th anniversary year we published a long-term plan to end homelessness for good across Wales, Scotland and England. 

Crisis Skylight South Wales

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

 

Adel's story
Since I’ve been working with Crisis, and since Crisis have been working with me, I’ve been building my confidence back up. Adel

There’s a lot going on for me now. It’s amazing. I’ve gone from that drunk, nobody wanted to know, to having my life back on track. People who know me can’t believe it. Have we got the right Adel? They ask. They can’t believe how much I’ve changed. But I wanted to change my life around.

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

It is time to repeal the Vagrancy Act, yes. But if the answer was ever about whether to criminalise people, then we have been asking the wrong question. If we can see our way past labelling, grouping, dismissing, damning, pointlessly prosecuting and fining people, perhaps we can start answering the right question. What help and support do people need to realise their potential, and how quickly can we get it to everyone that needs it?

The centuries-old Vagrancy Act, which makes rough sleeping and begging illegal in England and Wales, should be scrapped because it is needlessly pushing vulnerable people further from help, according to a new report from homelessness charity Crisis. The calls come as the Government today announces its review of the Act as part of its rough sleeping strategy.
