How we can help you at Crisis Skylight Brent

If you are homeless or 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.

Finding work and applying for jobs

We have three Work & Learning Coaches who can support you to build confidence and motivation.

They can help you with:

  • Information, advice and guidance about benefits
  • Access to training
  • Job applications, CV writing and interview preparation
  • Find volunteering and job opportunities
  • Sustaining work

We offer a range of short courses such as CV workshops, interviewing skills and run a regular job search session and IT class.

We also have traineeships in our cafes and charity shops that provide on-the-shop training in retail and food service.
