How we can help you at Crisis Skylight Edinburgh

If you are homeless, have been homeless in the last two years, or are at risk of becoming homeless, we can help you.

To us, homeless means sleeping on the streets or living in a hostel, shelter or refuge. It also means living in a B&B or other temporary accommodation.  And it can also mean living in supported housing because you have been homeless, sofa surfing, or living with friends/family as you have nowhere else to go.

What we offer

We offer free practical and creative workshops, individual advice and guidance sessions in local hostels, day centres and libraries.

Many of our classes can lead to qualifications. All of our activities are run by qualified tutors. Take a look at the timetable.

  • Music, drama and creative classes where you can meet people and explore new things you might enjoy.
  • Training and education, so that you can gain new qualifications and feel more ready for work.
  • Advice and support to help you plan for your future.
  • Contact with other organisations that can put a roof over your head, support you with issues including addiction, and give help with further education and volunteering.

Be a tour guide

We are running Be a tour guide sessions with the Museum of Scotland where you can learn the skills to become a tour guide and gain a qualification. Contact Deborah to learn more at deborah.shaw@crisis.org.uk or call 0131 209 7723.
