Emergency £250k Appeal

It’s hard to #StayHome when you don’t have a home. When you’re homeless, you are more likely to suffer from underlying health conditions and don’t have the facilities to wash your hands. Self-isolating can seem like a luxury.

That’s why Bethany Christian Trust is determined to keep our doors open during this crisis, to do more to assist people and to make sure all of our services stay operational. 

Homeless people are being hit really hard by the coronovirus outbreak. Due to the closure of our charity shops, we urgently need your help to ensure we can still give vital care and support to those who have nowhere else to go. 

Please donate today so that we can protect the people who need us now more than ever.

We know that this is a difficult time for many people financially. You can help us by sharing this post, praying for our staff and people who use our services or making a donation.

Together we can make sure no one is left alone or in danger. 

Thank you for your valued support at this time of crisis.


Alasdair Bennett, Chief Executive   

Donate your furniture

Co-vid 19 Update – 23/3/2020: We are currently only accepting the following items for uplift:

Single and Double Beds
Two-seater Sofas

All Bethany Shops will be closed until further notice. Apologies for inconvenience this may cause. 

Many people on low incomes starting a new tenancy lack basic items. Lack of furniture is a major factor in tenancy breakdown and contributes to episodes of repeat homelessness.

We urgently need good quality furniture to turn empty houses into homes. We can also use your donated items to generate vital funds through our shops. Please help us meet the needs of someone in a housing crisis today. By having a clear out, you can make an amazing contribution to someone’s life.

For further information or to arrange an uplift in Edinburgh, please contact us on 0131 561 8904
