The gift helping people sleeping rough this Winter.

We’re so glad you are here. By purchasing or receiving a Buy a Bed gift card, you help provide access to Bethany’s Rapid Re-accommodation Welcome Centre in Edinburgh, for those who would otherwise be sleeping on the streets this winter.

Your gift will help someone this winter by providing access to:

  • A warm, safe, private room with en-suite facilities
  • 24-hour care and support from professional, supportive and loving staff
  • Three meals a day including a freshly prepared, hot two-course dinner
  • A wide range of on-site support services
  • Assistance to move rapidly out of the crisis of homelessness

Bethany charity shops in Edinburgh and East Lothian also stock Buy a Bed gift cards.

What is the Welcome Centre?

The Rapid Re-accommodation Welcome Centre provides people who would otherwise be sleeping rough with 24-hour accommodation, hot food and access to 24/7 wrap around support. Guests also receive individualised support to help them move on to more suitable long-term accommodation.

Bethany project workers are there for individuals looking to find more permanent accommodation, and assist people with addictions or mental health issues. A wide range of referral routes to support is also provided.

The Welcome Centre is based at the Haymarket Hub Hotel, 7 Clifton Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 5DR and will be open between 4th October 2023 and 1st May 2024.
