In Scotland, almost a quarter of homeless applications are made by young people aged 16-24. The biggest cause of them becoming homeless is being asked to leave. Many have left home after experiencing a violent or abusive dispute within the household. They have very few reliable adults in their lives to depend on.
If you believe that vulnerable young people deserve help to move on from damaging experiences, you can help.
Will you donate so a young person in the worst of situations will feel less alone?
Providing counselling for young people coping with trauma.

Helping young people develop confidence with budgeting, shopping and cooking.
The gifts you choose today are representative of the kinds of items young people need this Christmas. This appeal will fund Christmas gifts and essentials for young people supported in our Quarriers youth homeless services. If we raise the funding required, your gift will be used where there is most need within Quarriers.
Quarriers has worked for Scotland’s families since 1871. Today, we support adults with a disability, children and families, people with epilepsy and young adults in over 100 services across Scotland.
