Bethany Care Van and Care Shelter, Edinburgh

Bethany Christian Trust run services focused on relieving the immediate suffering and meeting the long terms needs of homeless and vulnerable people in Scotland.

Emergency and Resettlement projects work with people on the streets and in temporary accommodation. These projects provide furniture and household basics. Projects in this group also support people working towards an alcohol and drug free life in the community.

Visiting Support covers a number of projects across the country working with people who have housing needs but who also need support with associated issues. These range from health and social networks to budgeting and finding work or volunteering opportunities.

Community Development builds local partnerships to provide sustainable, long-term solutions to some of the most challenging situations in Scotland’s communities. Local people come together to find solutions and build stronger communities through these projects.
