Every day we help make positive things happen for people in Edinburgh facing extremely difficult circumstances. We provide expert, compassionate and flexible support and link people into the services they need. Everything we do is about enabling a life off the streets, showing dignity and respect to everyone we meet.
People can access support every day through our Holyrood Hub and Helpline. But we don’t wait for people to come to us – we go to them. We understand that for some people, accessing a building or service can be difficult. For this reason we do street outreach every day, as well as visiting people in their homes and temporary accommodation.
Streetwork is part of Simon Community Scotland – we deliver a range of services across Glasgow, Edinburgh and across Central Scotland. We work with people so that they can resolve their homelessness as quickly as possible. We maintain contact with people – in diverse circumstances – so that we can help them address the underlying reasons for their homelessness and get the support they need. By working and learning together we can drive impact and change person to person – to transform everyone’s experience of homelessness in Scotland.
If you’re worried about someone in Edinburgh, you can contact us by email or call our Helpline 0808 178 2323.
