information DESCRIPTION

"Inspiring others to inspire each other"

Street Fit Scotland Charity is a health, fitness and well-being programme of activities for people affected by homelessness.

Street Fit Scotland’s mission is to provide Scotland’s homeless and vulnerably housed population with a programme of fitness to improve their mental, physical health and wellbeing. Our vision is a world where all of Scotland’s at risk population are fit and mentally well enough to address their wider issues and eventually lead secure and fulfilling lives.

Homelessness is often caused by wider societal issues, we are committed to supporting people who are experiencing trauma, alcohol or substance addiction, poverty, or social isolation. We pride ourselves on providing a research-led service, which constantly adapts itself according to feedback from those it is designed to serve.

There is real proven benefits to using exercise as means to combat long-term homelessness. Those who attend our classes regularly report enormous benefits to their mental and physical health. Having something positive to build healthy relationships around has created a great support network for our beneficiaries which is invaluable in a community filled with negative influences. The structure and routine involved with showing up each session influences other aspects of their lives too.

We don’t just put on an exercise class and leave at that. We provide a one-to-one counselling service, critical crisis support and drop ins, access to our IT suite so that people can bid for houses and support to fill in online benefit forms. We work alongside housing, social work, health, and G.P services as well as sign posting to relevant services. We provide nourishing meals after most sessions; we have created a compassionate community of people who are inspired to make a change for the better. For some this has meant being able to beat addictions, volunteer with us, gain employment and get their lives back on track.
