We are honoured to reveal that this year the Glasgow University Charity Fashion Show will be supporting Simon Community Scotland. In 2016, the charity celebrated 50 years of their work combating the causes and effects of homelessness in Scotland, with the vision that one day everyone will have a safe place to live and get the support they need.
Simon Community Scotland’s mission is to help people experiencing homelessness overcome the problems they face through a number of incredible services. Last year alone, their 160-strong team of staff provided assistance to over 3,000 people. Some of their most valued services are:
We would highly recommend that anyone wondering how they can do their bit to help those in need should consult Simon Community Scotland’s hugely informative website, which gives advice on how to help and answers to common questions you might have about interacting with vulnerable people; something as simple as initiating a conversation can have a valuable impact in itself.
For the past 50 years Simon Community Scotland has been making a huge impact on the lives of vulnerable people in Glasgow. We have been bowled over by the amazing work of Simon Community Scotland and are looking forward to working hard alongside their incredible team to generate awareness and raise funds for this special cause. Committee members now face an exciting and busy summer ahead as we plan fundraising events ranging from the Edinburgh Kilt walk to abseiling!
