Crisis in search for a new leader

Crisis is looking for a new chief executive to spear-head its drive to become more involved in education. This follows the resignation of Shaks Ghosh, who announced last week she was stepping down after nine years at the helm. She is yet to announce her plans for the future.

Ghosh made Crisis focus more on helping homeless people to engage in "meaningful activities" rather than simply finding them accommodation.

Skylight was launched four years ago to provide courses in basic skills, and in March this year the Learning Zone began running accredited courses.

A spokeswoman for Crisis said: "People need to be doing something constructive during the day instead of just worrying about being homeless."
