The Rock Trust works to prevent youth homelessness & support young people to build better futures. It aims to ensure that every young person in Scotland has access to expert youth specific services to assist them to avoid, survive and move on from homelessness. The Rock Trust firmly believes that accommodation, support, education and employment are the best routes off the streets and away from homelessness, leading to a better future for young people.
Rock Trust’s services range from long-term support for young people with very complex needs, such as those leaving care, to emergency support for young people in crisis, to a helping hand for young people who are simply struggling to access an expensive and competitive rental market.
In addition to accommodation, the Rock Trust also helps young people to progress in their lives so that they can overcome personal barriers and move on from homelessness for good.
The young people they work with have access to a variety of opportunities to learn and develop, depending on where they are in their lives. The Rock Trust can in fact provide 1-1 support workers, mentors, mediation, and health and well-being support, alongside regular evening groups such as cooking club, employability drop-in and short educational courses.
