Crisis Skylight London

Crisis Skylight is an award winning and dynamic education, training and employment centre for homeless and vulnerably housed people.

We offer 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.
