Organisation aims and objectives

The Rock Trust is a charity that works in Edinburgh and West Lothian with homeless and socially excluded young people between the ages of 16 and 25 years. The Trust’s aim is to provide opportunities for young people to develop the personal, social and practical skills, as well as the sense of self worth necessary for independent adult life. We do this by providing supported accommodation in a mixture of shared and single flats, including specific provision for young mothers and babies, move on support to those moving to their own home. Our Compass Project also offer supports to young people to develop the social coping skills to avoid isolation, along with opportunities for befriending and mentoring support and supported volunteering opportunities across the Lothians.
