Crisis Skylight Edinburgh

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

We offer structured courses, taster sessions and one-to-one support to help people learn, develop skills and improve their confidence. 

The overall aim of our work is to support individuals in their journey out of homelessness and towards independence.
