How we can help you at Crisis Skylight Coventry

Lottery funded, Big Lottery FundIf 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.

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

Finding a home and settling in well

Our housing coaches can help you find a rented home. We provide Renting Ready training in managing money and bills, finding flatmates or DIY.
