Last year more than 600 young people in Edinburgh were homeless. We supported 407 young people. Can you help us ensure that next year we reach every single young person who needs us?
Cuts to our core funding are threatening our ability to reach the current number of young people we work with, when what we need is to reach more. We have had to reduce our crisis support, including access to emergency housing advice and essentials like food, toiletries and heating, at a time when the homelessness crisis is worsening, and winter is settling in.
Our vision is an end to homelessness in Scotland, which we believe can be achieved through prevention and national partnerships. We can’t do what we do without you – our community, our partners, our friends. Whilst we work with charities and organisations across Scotland to make youth homelessness a thing of the past, we hope that you will support us to help the young people who need us right now.
How you can help:
- £5 is 1 package of essential toiletries
- £16 is 1 night of emergency accommodation and support
- £25 is 2 weeks of heating in winter
- £50 is 100 hot meals
- £100 is warm clothing for 4 young people
- £500 is 1 week of emergency advice and support for 10 young people
