Street Support Edinburgh

An online service to improve support for people who are homeless has been launched this week.

Street Support Edinburgh provides advice, support and resources for homeless and vulnerable people in the Edinburgh area. The website is a central place to find out about homelessness, see what support is available, and see what you can do to help. The website works offline, so you do not need an internet connection to access information.

Colin Beck, Strategy, Planning and Quality Manager Mental Health and Substance Misuse said:

I welcome this innovative way of providing information, which will help people connect. Knowing how and where to get help and support is a crucial component of feeling included. I realise there are access issues for some people and we must search for solutions to help people connect.

Street Support Edinburgh has been developed as part of a project by the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Homeless Inclusion and Health (CHIH) and the Manchester-based Street Support Network. Read more on the Edinburgh University website.
