Charitable Trusts & Foundations are vitally important to our work.

We simply would not be able to provide and develop our safe places and support without the generous donations from Charitable Trusts and Foundations.

Charitable trusts, foundations and other grant givers fund approximately one third of our work. This is absolutely VITAL in allowing us to develop our services. 

If you are a trustee or have links to charitable trusts, foundations or other voluntary funding bodies, please get in touch by emailing

Here are just a couple of examples of how the support of trusts & foundations is helping us to offer hope, opportunities and purpose to people experiencing,  or at risk of, homelessness. Our support changes and saves lives. 

Get Connected 500

Thanks to a £150,000 grant from Good Things Foundation we were able to take our work and evidence from our Get Connected 100 programme and scale it up to Get Connected 500.


What is Get Connected 500?

In short, it’s a digital inclusion programme. The funding means we can provide 500 people experiencing homelessness with digital devices, unlimited data and training. The results have been life changing. 


Read about the results from Get Connected 100 HERE and listen to our podcast with partners and people who benefited from the project HERE or click below.


Next step Get Connected 1,000?! We hope so!



SCS Homes

We were extremely grateful to receive £5m of social investment from Social and Sustainable Capital (SASC), from its Social and Sustainable Housing fund (SASH) to purchase homes to help vulnerable people move away from homelessness. Using the SASH investment, which was partly funded by a £1 million commitment from the University of Edinburgh, we’re working towards owning 30 properties in Edinburgh that will become permanent homes for at least 30 tenants, helping them transition from homelessness towards employment and a new life.


At the time of writing, we are halfway through this game changer for our support services. The first person that moved into one of our SCS Homes was a woman we first met begging and rough sleeping on Princes Street in 2019. In 2022 we were able to give her a home.


We are VERY keen to look at developing our SCS Homes model in Glasgow and would welcome conversations with anyone interested in helping. Please do get in touch by emailing



Safe places and support

Lets offer hope together. If your Trust or Foundation would be interested in a chat about how you could help us change and save the lives of people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness through safe places and support, then please email We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how we could work together.
