Description

In Celtic mythology, the Rowan tree was known as the Travellers’ Tree, because it prevented people on a journey getting lost.

Rowan Alba services work across Scotland today to support vulnerable people on their journey to a home of their own.

Rowan Alba works with those whose lives are chaotic often, but not exclusively, due to domestic abuse, drug or alcohol dependency or mental health issues. A combination of these factors can lead to homelessness, which makes the whole situation much more complex, and one not always solved by providing a roof over a head.

Rowan Alba services in Edinburgh, Perth and Kinross, Angus and Dundee reduce the chances of people becoming homeless or, where this has happened, to provide people with the ongoing care and support they need.
