Crisis opens a cafe in Skylight add-on

Crisis is to open a public cafe as a new addition to Crisis Skylight, its successful East London activity centre for homeless people.

The Skylight Cafe, which will employ homeless members of Crisis Skylight to cook and serve the food, will provide training in cash-handling, customer-service and food and drink preparation. Any profits will go to the charity.

It will open in June as a coffee shop offering hot drinks and cold snacks.

In 2005, after extensive renovation, the cafe will offer a full range of cooked meals.

Learning disabilities charity the Camden Society will work in partnership with Crisis Skylight to manage and deliver the training.

Skylight opened in September 2002 offering free workshops to homeless people in subjects ranging from bicycle repair to yoga.
