Farewell and thank you to our Edinburgh StreetCare volunteers

December 14, 2021

This month saw our fantastic Edinburgh StreetCare volunteers pack up their trolley for the last time as the project closed. During the pandemic Edinburgh Council and other service providers greatly increased their provision for people facing housing uncertainty which meant the project was no longer necessary. We wanted to say a huge thank you to the dedicated team of Edinburgh volunteers who provided so much support and comfort to people over the years.

As a small token of our appreciation we made a wee thank you video, and we hope that everyone will join us in saying a heartfelt thank you to the volunteer team who were the epitome of humanism in action. 

Whilst we are saying farewell and  goodbye  to StreetCare Edinburgh, StreetCare Glasgow continues to provide a much needed and appreciated service, supporting people on the streets, as well as redirecting surplus food to hostels and refuges.
