How we can help you at Crisis Skylight Edinburgh

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 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.
