How Crisis supports people facing homelessness in Brent

We work with people in Brent to help them rebuild their lives and leave homelessness behind for good.

Our Brent Skylight centre can help with:

    • Finding a home and settling in
    • Finding work and applying for jobs
    • Looking after your health and wellbeing

How we can help depends on your situation and needs. If another service can provide the support you need, we'll refer you to them.

So we can best help you, tell us: what is your situation today?

If you are currently homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, the first thing you should do is contact your local council as they have a duty to help you.

If you are rough sleeping now, visit the StreetLink website or call them on 0300 500 0914. StreetLink exists to help end rough sleeping by connecting people sleeping rough with the local services that can support them. 

To learn what Crisis can do for you in Brent, select the I would like support from Crisis in Brent option from this list.

If you need general or specific housing and homelessness related advice, the charity Shelter may also be able to help you. Shelter has a wealth of resources available online and you can also search for your nearest legal advice centre. If you are homeless, have nowhere to sleep tonight or are at risk of harm or abuse in your home, you can call Shelter’s emergency helpline: 0808 800 4444.

Learn more about how other organisations might be able to help you. 

StreetLink exists to help end rough sleeping by enabling members of the public to connect people sleeping rough with the local services that can support them. Visit the StreetLink website to help someone you believe is sleeping rough.

How we can help depends on your situation and needs.

Our focus is on supporting people who face the most barriers and cannot, or find it difficult to, access other services. If another service can provide the support you need, we will refer you to them.

Crisis Skylight Brent works with people over the age of 16 who are experiencing homelessness, or are immediately at risk of homelessness.

We only accept self-referrals, which should be in person to our drop-in service between 10am and 1pm Monday – Friday.

Our Engagement and Assessment team will assess your initial support needs. We'll provide you with information, advice and guidance and create a plan with you around how we can support you to sustainably end your homelessness.

"I just want to create this awareness on mental health and the support that they’ve given me at Crisis. From what I’ve seen with Crisis, if you are homeless, they can help you with your Universal Credit, your housing and they can provide every assistance that you need."
— Victor, member from Brent
