Who is this for?

  • Anyone affected by homelessness or at risk of homelessness


Bethany Christian Trust is a national charity dedicated to ending homelessness in Scotland, one person, one family and one community at a time.

Our mission is to relieve the suffering and meet the long term needs of homeless and vulnerable people in Scotland. To do this we partner with communities, churches, organisations, local and national government, to offer tailored support and services.

We’re ending homelessness in Scotland with three streams of support designed to meet people’s needs and bring long lasting change. Our integrated approach means we are there for people at every stage in their journey as we seek to prevent homelessness, intervene in crisis and sustain people in their own homes.

Examples of services we provide:

  • Care Van – provides food and support to people in crisis on the streets in Edinburgh
  • Rapid Re-accommodation Welcome Centre – provides emergency accommodation with support to anyone who has no alternative accommodation and needs somewhere safe to stay.
  • Bridge to Freedom – a Christian recovery programme which includes both group and one-to-one sessions
  • Click and Connect Computer Drop-in – A free space to access laptops and support in Leith
  • Various community meals and support groups in multiple locations across the city
  • And loads more!
