Crisis Skylight Croydon

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 supported housing because you have been homeless, sofa surfing, or living with friends/family as you have nowhere else to go. And it can mean living in a B&B, a squat or other temporary accommodation.

What we offer

We offer free practical and creative workshops, individual advice and guidance sessions in our centre in Surrey Street, Croydon as well as local hostels, day centres and libraries.

Many of our classes can lead to qualifications. All of our activities are run by qualified tutors.

We can:
• offer lots of regular courses and fun creative sessions for you to try
• give you one to one advice and guidance on education, training and housing
• support you to find work, accommodation and a home to rent when you are ready
• help find funding for rent in advance or your deposit
