Lack of skills and qualifications can lead people to become and stay homeless, isolated from society, work and independence. Education is at the heart of Crisis – supporting people to build knowledge and skills, grow in confidence and feel more positive about the future.

Many Crisis clients say their formal education was incomplete. From literacy and numeracy, to millinery and music, Crisis’ classes break the cycle of homelessness. They provide routine and purpose and equip people with skills for work and life.

Vocational courses, such as tiling or plumbing, can be a step into work.
