Partnerships that make a difference

Help us provide and develop safe places and support to people experiencing homelessness.

Day in and day out, we are there for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness – providing empathy, care, support, information, advice, accommodation and homes.

We do this person-to-person on the streets, on the phone, through outreach support, in our hubs, through digital inclusion and harm reduction, in our emergency and supported accommodation services and our own SCS homes.

We meet people where they are. We walk alongside them. We never give up.

We supported over 9,000 people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in 2023.

Could your company help us to change and save lives?

Our vision – everyone deserves a safe place to live and access to the support they need.

By becoming a charity partner and supporting our vision, you will help provide hope, safe places and support to people experiencing homelessness and ultimately help us to change and save lives.

Please read this open letter to businesses that CEO Lorraine McGrath published in December 2023.

Let's work together to make a difference

We would love to meet up to discuss how we could potentially work or partner together to make a difference.

 

We are extremely fortunate to have benefited from incredible corporate support over the years through partnerships, fundraising activities, donations, volunteering, skill sharing and pro-bono support.

 

Getting staff involved in fundraising activities, sharing skills and offering pro-bono work will help build the capacity of our organisation which, in turn, helps us to deliver our mission and operate sustainably.

Service Lead in North Lanarkshire

“Being able to collaborate and work alongside corporate partners within the North Lanarkshire area has been excellent. Story Contracting Ltd has brought life into our gardens and nature areas over time, which has supported us to improve spaces and environments that are proven to boost people’s physical and mental health levels.”

 

Choosing Simon Community Scotland as your charity partner will help us provide information, advice, care, support, accommodation and homes to people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.

Kelly Innes, People Lead at AND Digital, Glasgow

 “Our longterm partnership with Simon Community Scotland is an incredibly rewarding experience. The project team of AND really enjoyed the technical challenges of the project but more importantly, they were fully engaged with the SCS team and were fully invested in helping to develop a tool that will impact many lives in a positive way. During our recent Almeida Club Day, we had the pleasure of collaborating and brainstorming with the SCS team. For all of us at AND, it was a real eye-opener to understand the background and hard work SCS put in on a daily basis and we are delighted to be able to help, in our own small way.”

Choosing Simon Community Scotland as your charity partner will help us provide information, advice, care, support, accommodation and homes to people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.

Testimonial - Gavin Money, Biffa

“Our engagement with Simon Community Scotland has broadened my personal understanding of the complex issues, needs and associated support the organisation provides across Glasgow and Edinburgh. I also, through my time with a Glasgow Street Team, appreciated that many of the people that find themselves displaced or in need rarely reach that place through choice and that Simon Community Scotland provide comprehensive packages of care with the aim to save and improve people’s lives with an amazing team that truly care and want to make a difference”.

 

“I would encourage businesses to support and get involved with Simon Community Scotland as you will see, first hand, the tangible and palpable difference that this incredible organisation and team make to people’s lives. You will quickly grasp a sense of humility and respect for the issues that face our fellow citizens in Scottish cities and will feel compelled to get involved and want to make a difference. Our staff have supported with sponsorship; volunteering; and supported the decoration of accommodation – the contribution doesn’t have to be financial but it’s equally precious to give up one’s time to help others”.
