Welcome to Rowan Alba

Our services are built around people and their individual needs. Watch this short video to learn more about how we support all kinds of people, in a way that suits them.

Training

Working in homelessness prevention and supporting people to realise their full potential, 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.    

Services

 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.

Support us

The need for people to be able to call their GP surgery or pharmacist is vital, as is the importance of remaining in contact with family and friends.  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.

Work for Rowan Alba!

After 17 years we’ve moved to a new office! The old building holds a special place in our hearts, but we’re excited about a new chapter. New office, but the same Rowan Alba, and all services are continuing as normal. For more visit https://t.co/rfwMPT3lw2 https://t.co/urllQd6nHS
