We provide direct services for homeless people, aiming to help them to move forward with their lives.

Since 1968, we have provided an increasing range of services for homeless people, and at present, we meet the needs of around 2,000 people each year.

In the main, we provide hostel type accommodation, run a drop in centre, help service users in gaining rented accommodation, provide advice, information and emotional support and provide training and access to education and employment opportunities.

We welcome and actively encourage the involvement of volunteers in a variety of areas to help us to open the doors wider for homeless people in Aberdeen.
