Crisis Skylight Centre, 11-19 Surrey Street

Drop-in centre for homeless people on the ground floor of Bridge House on Surrey Street. It opened in February 2017.

The premises were previously occupied by a furniture shop called Tree Lounge photo, which opened in February 2013. As of early October 2013 there were signs in the window indicating a closing-down sale, and according to a member of staff the shop would indeed be closing down (and moving to Peckham) around the end of the month. As of January 2014 it remained open (though the closing-down signs were still there).

As of April 2014, Tree Lounge had closed, the interior had been stripped out photo, and there was a to-let sign in the window photo.

The premises were vacant and advertised to let photo of sign as of April 2014, and still vacant as of July 2014.

From 5 November 2014 to 2 May 2015 it was home to the Surrey Streatery photo, a "food hub" housing half a dozen food-related small businesses. The official launch was on 5 November 2014 and the project was scheduled to run for six months; the last day was 2 May 2015.

As of April 2015, the goods on offer included Goan, Mexican, West African, and vegan/gluten-free food, plus Goan groceries, juices, and coffee. Food was generally served in takeaway containers, but there was plenty of seating for eating in.

Following the closure of the Surrey Streatery, the space remained empty for nearly two years. However, in February 2016, the charity Crisis were granted planning permission (ref 15/05640/P) to open "a day centre [...] for homeless people" in the space, and this finally opened in February 2017.

Existence last checked in December 2019.
