Shop to end homelessness
Crisis has helped me a lot. It’s a wonderful facility. It gives you skills, support, help with housing, encourages you to help yourself and if you just want to meet people, that’s there as well Ade, Crisis trainee
The training programme is definitely an eye-opener. I didn’t have much knowledge about what retail entailed. So watching the staff and how they interacted with customers taught me how to do it, how to read and communicate with different people. It increased my confidence. I learnt a lot from them.
