Our Veteran’s Mentoring Service is about to embark on the new and exciting challenge of beekeeping!

The idea originated during a visit to Sacro by author Alexander McCall Smith CBE FRSE when it was brought to his attention that one of the people using our service – who was present at the time – mentioned that he looked after the beehives while in prison.

Homelessness

Volunteers

Volunteers’ Week takes place every year from 1 – 7 June and is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.

Volunteers are absolutely vital to the work Sacro does so we thought this week, we would ask them to explain in their own words, why they decided to volunteer with Sacro and what volunteering means to them.

Sacro fully understands the need to implement an early release of individuals from custody; for their safety and that of prison staff. We are also acutely aware that – although there is a need for urgency – any arrangements put in place must be robust and have community safety at their heart.

We would like to take this opportunity to update you on the temporary measures we have put in place to allow us to continue to deliver the service during restrictions placed on us by the Coronavirus pandemic.

YourHome staff have been continuing to work hard to ensure that our focus and priority is supporting individuals who are at risk of losing their home or who are currently experiencing homelessness in Edinburgh. In line with government advice, the YourHome office has been temporarily closed and staff are working from their own homes.
