A big change
A powerful new strategy between
Common Ground Against Homelessness
and Rowan Alba is going have a lasting impact
on street homelessness in Scotland
Working in homelessness prevention and supporting people to realise their full potential, communication is key. Rowan Alba offers a variety of coaching qualifications and training, including the unique opportunity to be trained remotely for volunteering during CoVid19 restrictions.
CoVid 19 Volunteering
The current situation is bringing many vulnerable adults to the attention of services for the first time. If we don’t act now they will slip through the net. Help us respond. Act now and we can commence visits when restrictions are lifted and manage the introductions via telephone in the meantime.
We provide a range of services across Scotland, which reduce the chances of people becoming homeless. Our staff are working tirelessly ensuring all our services continue despite CoVid 19 restrictions.

Many people are telling us they have no phone credit and are worried about how they will manage to spend more on food than normal to allow them to keep themselves safe. No one is panic buying. Everyone is simply preparing for less trips to the shop than usual. We need to respond by supporting these people to self isolate safely. £10 has never gone so far as it does now.
