What we do

We provide services which help alleviate homelessness across Scotland. We now also provide training for coaching qualifications. 

Every year Rowan Alba supports around many service users in Edinburgh.

Through our services, we provide: 

  • roofs over heads
  • hope for the future
  • an ear to listen
  • help setting up homes
  • the confidence to tackle problems
  • stability and security
  • the chance to make a difference

Your donations are vital to us in order to carry out our work. Help support us, so we can continue to support them.

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.
