Description

Rock Trust aims to end youth homelessness in Scotland by ensuring that every young person has access to expert youth specific services to assist them to avoid, survive and move on from homelessness.

Our role is to advise, educate and support young people. We want to enable them to build the personal skills and resources required to make a positive and healthy transition to adulthood, while avoiding or moving on from homelessness.

We also work to ensure that the public, policy makers, commissioners and practitioners understand the issues, make decisions and take action which will end youth homelessness.

Established in 1991, The Rock Trust works with young people between the age of 16 and 25 who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless across Edinburgh and the Lothians. This includes young people who are in transitions, leaving care or home and those involved in offending, alcohol or drug misuse.

We provide:

- Advice service available at our Underground drop in centre
- One to one support - at our offices or at the young person’s accommodation
- Group programmes, including sport, gardening, cooking etc.
- Opportunities for volunteering and work experience
- A respite place to stay, for those who need time away from their situation
- Mediation to build positive relationships
- Supported housing in shared or single accommodation

Come and see us – we are here to help.

We are open 8:45am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

Drop-in to our Duty Service anytime between 9:00am - 4:00pm, Monday - Friday and someone will be able to talk things through with you.
