Social Bite Fund
The Social Bite Fund (SC045232) is a registered charity in Scotland which seeks to alleviate homeless through innovative solutions from employment and support programmes, to temporary housing. Another key aim of the Social Bite Fund is to promote a new way of doing business through the promotion of a “Social Business” model, where 100% of the profits of trading companies are directed at social problems in Scotland. Social Bite wholly owns two companies which operate the Social Business model, namely Social Bite, a chain of retail stores and catering concessions which employs a quarter of its workforce from a homeless background; and HOME Restaurant which provides training and employment opportunities for homeless and vulnerable people. Home Restaurant also provides weekly sit down meals for homeless people in Edinburgh. In 2017 the Social Bite Fund will be establishing a community of modular housing for up to 20 homeless people in Edinburgh with the aim of supporting these people into permanent housing and employment, breaking the cycle of homelessness for good.

Sleep in the Park

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting this page and supporting this very exciting initiative.  We all say that something should be done for homelessness, and most of us can even make suggestions - but we do not actually do anything.  The people behind this initiative have actually made a plan and are working towards making a real difference. 

Most of us cannot actually go to the Sleep in the Park, but we can get behind the idea - through the Parish Church, the Isle of Colonsay will be playing its part.  Please give generously - maybe forego one bottle of wine or a few pints in the run up to Christmas, or maybe email your friends to say you are not sending Christmas Cards and instead are contributing against homelessness.  We aim to raise at least £1000 and your contribution may help us put the target to shame.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor this ploy and all donations will be quickly processed and passed to this charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
