Crisis Skylight South Wales

Welcome to Crisis Skylight South Wales.

It has been a busy few months planning the setup of our new service for single homeless people. We have been working closely with local organisations and prospective clients, to develop a service that addresses the specific needs of homeless people in the region.

Newsletter - Issue 1

Crisis Skylight South Wales NewsletterOur first newsletter has been edited by Richard and Ed, whose engagement with Crisis in different cities has led to their involvement with the Skylight South Wales project.

In this edition, you’ll find out more about our editors, Crisis, and our plans for South Wales, as well as an interview by Ed to introduce Karen Grunhut (Director of Skylight South Wales).

Our plans for South Wales

Our team will initially be based in Swansea, offering services which will be designed to complement existing provision. This is likely to include informal and accredited learning services; employment coaching; progression coaching and support with accessing housing.

We will deliver services and activities on an outreach model – working in community venues as well as day centres and hostels to reach homeless people as effectively as possible. Over time, we hope to extend our services into other areas of South Wales and the Valleys.

We will work with partners in these areas to establish if there is an unmet need, and design activities and support that will help and add value to existing provision.

We will carefully plan our work to address the specific needs of homeless people in the region.

We have worked over the last 12 months to build partnerships with local providers, commissioners and homeless people, and look forward to continuing this work and introducing the new team.
