Crisis in Scotland

In Scotland Crisis works directly with homeless people and those who are at risk of becoming homeless - campaigning on their behalf and offering a range of services. We also fundraise and offer volunteering opportunities.

Policy and research in Scotland

We work with politicians, policy makers and the Scottish and Westminster governments to bring about change and share good practice, using expertise from working with single homeless people and our understanding of the issues they face to shape policy and practice.

We carry out UK-wide and Scotland-specific research into the issues faced by those affected by homelessness, identifying causes and solutions.

Private renting in Scotland

The private rented sector has long been recognised as a potential source of accommodation for homeless people. We work with local authorities across Scotland to help people live securely and independently in privately rented accommodation. Crisis helps organisations set up and run successful private renting access schemes.

Crisis Skylight Edinburgh

Our services at Skylight Edinburgh support single homeless people, providing opportunities to learn new skills, gain qualifications and improve confidence. We also host Crisis at Christmas in Edinburgh.

Fundraising in Scotland

Running, cycling, swimming and walking are just some of the ways you can help raise money for Crisis in Scotland.
