We don’t wait for people to find us – we go to them. Our dedicated Street Outreach team is on the streets of Edinburgh everyday. We walk the streets to find and engage with people who are facing extremely difficult circumstances.
Not everyone on the streets is aware of the support that is available. Additionally, some people find it difficult to engage with services. Our Street Outreach team is able to offer immediate support and advice as well as encourage people to use services that can help them. This includes linking people into the Streetwork Holyrood Hub – our centre providing basic amenities, specialist drop-ins and on-going support from our staff team.
By meeting people where they are, we can help start the process of enabling a life off the streets.
