Together we will end homelessness in Scotland
In Scotland, we provide education, training and support for homeless people empowering them to move on from homelessness through our Edinburgh Skylight.
We campaign to end homelessness for good. In our 50th year we produced a Plan to End homelessness. Our Chief Executive Jon Sparkes chaired the Scottish Government’s Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group. Our work with the Scottish Government through HARSAG led to the publication of Ending Homelessness Together a High-Level Action Plan to End Homelessness, the first of its kind across Great Britain.
Our national overview on Rapid Rehousing Transition Plans (RRTPs) shows how each of Scotland’s 32 local authorities has responded to the expectations of the Action Plan and the HARSAG, in relation to a shift to a homelessness system of rapid rehousing by default.
We also fundraise through challenge events; with supporters hosting events across their communities; and through valuable relationships with a range of corporate partners. See below for ways you can get active with us.
Further, through our Best Practice Team we provide expert information, training and advice to housing professionals.
Crisis Skylight Edinburgh works with people who are homeless and vulnerably housed. Our work is enhanced by a dedicated group of volunteers who help us at Christmas and all year round.
