Crisis Skylight Edinburgh

Crisis is the national charity for single homeless people. We are dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaigning for change. We work with ‘members’ (people who access our services) in locations around the city of Edinburgh. Our innovative education, employment, housing and well-being services address individual needs and help people to transform their lives. As well as delivering services, we are determined campaigners, working to prevent people from becoming homeless and advocating solutions informed by research and our direct experience.
