We have developed three sponsorship packages  – gold (exclusive), silver and bronze – which are geared to be flexible and deliver rewards that are mutually beneficial and cost effective. This event is vital for raising funds and awareness of the devastating issue of youth homelessness. Can you or your company support us?

Please get in touch if you can help, or pass this on to colleagues, friends or family who might be interested! If you are interested in discussing any of these packages, please contact: events@rocktrust.org or 0131 5574059

Freezing temperatures, cold noses and chilly nights like these really make us grateful to have a home – and the ability to heat it properly and stay warm. Read about how Rock Trust project workers are assisting our young people to access vital extra support in order to keep warm. http://ow.ly/HL3CP

This Sunday – 18th January – is Homeless Sunday. Homeless Sunday brings people together in order to raise awareness of the issue of homelessness, and show solidarity with those who have been affected by it. Homelessness can have a devastating impact upon individuals’ lives, leading to the collapse of relationships and the breakup of families.

This Homeless Sunday, we are asking local churches and faith groups to help us raise funds that will enable The Rock Trust to be there for the young people in Edinburgh and the Lothians that need us most. If you have any questions regarding our work then please don’t hesitate to contact admin@rocktrust.org http://ow.ly/Hgfu3

Today, on #GivingTuesday, The Rock Trust’s Chief Executive, Kate Polson, launches a call to action. We need your help to keep our Underground center open. We need support from the local community to ensure that young people experiencing or threatened with homelessness have a safe place to go. With both of our annual Sleep Out events now behind us, we are focusing on the year ahead. 2014 saw us deliver our most successful Sleep Outs yet, but in terms of both experience and funds raised, we still have some way to go to have enough funds to keep the Underground open for another year. http://ow.ly/FdT6A
