WHAT WE DO >>>

For decades, Crawley Open House has strived to support those suffering the effects of homelessness, unemployment, loneliness, discrimination, or other forms of social exclusion.

 

From providing short-term accommodation in our homeless hostel, to move-on houses, providing Outreach Services to those in the local community and our new Laing Rooms which provide accommodation at our base in Three Bridges, the services we provide has grown dramatically, driven by need and the desire to provide as much support for those who need it as we can.

The next exciting stage of new development comes in the form of our new Resource Centre. The brand new project, opposite our hostel in Stephenson Way, Three Bridges in Crawley is to help residents and service users get the confidence and employability and life skills to get back into training, education and employment.

THE RESOURCE CENTRE IS NOW OPEN
