Crisis Skylight London
Crisis Skylight is an award winning and dynamic education, training and employment centre for homeless and vulnerably housed people.
It offers practical and creative workshops in an accessible and inspiring environment together with formal learning opportunities that lead to qualifications and can help people to find work. Employment and training is the single most important route out of homelessness.
A wide range of learning opportunities includes art, music and drama, vocational courses and basic skills training to help people feel better about themselves, develop new skills and motivation. There are also many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year.
