Rowan Alba’s Follow Me service has been awarded £412,002 by The Big Lottery Fund Scotland’s Investing in Communities programme.
Follow Me will use the award to continue to assist homeless people in Edinburgh, who have experienced domestic abuse, to move from temporary accommodation into their own tenancy. The project includes helping support those with multiple issues such as mental health, substance misuse, and offending.
Helen Carlin, Rowan Alba’s Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to be able to help so many vulnerable adults with the support of the Big Lottery Fund. The grant provides stability for service users, and the organisation, for four years, in what is undoubtedly a hostile and challenging environment for many individuals and those trying to support them.”
