~ Crisis is the National Charity for Single Homeless People. They are dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaigning for change. ~ http://www.crisis.org.uk/pages/what-we-do.html ~

And we campaign to make sure that one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. ~ https://england.shelter.org.uk/our_work ~

https://centrepoint.org.uk/

~ Centrepoint supports more than 9,000 homeless 16-25 year olds a year into a home and a job. We think it’s time to end youth homelessness in the UK. Centrepoint support and make provision for Homeless young people, aged 16-25, who stay with Centrepoint for up to two years, but we keep supporting them for another six months to make sure they can live independently. We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment. ~ https://centrepoint.org.uk/what-we-do/ ~

https://www.emmaus.org.uk/

~ Emmaus UK (pronounced em-MAY-us) is a homelessness charity with a difference. We don’t just give people a bed for the night; we offer a home, meaningful work and a sense of belonging.

For many people who have experienced homelessness, losing their self-esteem can be the most damaging part of their experience. Being on your own, with no support around you can be soul destroying, leaving you feeling worthless.

Finding your way out of that situation isn’t easy, particularly when the only options available are temporary fixes, offering a bed for the night but little to occupy your days.

Emmaus is different because it provides a home for as long as someone needs it, in an Emmaus community. This gives people the opportunity to take stock of their lives, deal with any issues they might have, and often re-establish relationships with loved ones.

“Companion” is the name given to those who live in an Emmaus community and work in the social enterprise, where they support themselves and one another.

Emmaus social enterprises generate revenue that pays for companions’ home, food and upkeep, as well as providing a small weekly allowance. This is key to restoring feelings of self-worth, showing these individuals that their actions make a real difference, both to their own life, and the lives of others. ~ https://www.emmaus.org.uk/what_we_do ~

~ Homeless Link are the national membership charity for organisations working directly with people who become homeless in England. We work to make services better and campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness. ~ http://www.homeless.org.uk/about-us ~

    1. Sterling work Sue, and always without condition, turning misfortune into a more fortunate tune.

      Several of our number have direct experience of Crisis. Their stories are touching but all find ability to restore ones belief in benevolence being at the heart of a modern charitable and inclusive society.

      Thank you for your comment Sue.

      Namaste 🙂

    1. Hey Shehanne,

      Why thank you! How lovely to have you visit the Scarecrows here at Gallybloggers. It feels almost as if we knew you were due to arrive 🙂

      Indeed the Law is a superb vantage point and the view stunning. Catch the morning and evening light just right and the view towards Broughty Ferry and beyond takes the breath away. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the City of Dundee. But do take a camera, a decent thick coat, and a woolly hat…it blows a wee storm at the top every day!

      Thank you so much for stopping by our field and sharing a line or two in the company of us here scarecrows. A new friend is always welcome.

      Best wishes for an enjoyable weekend. Good luck with the writing and the play!

      Take care Shehanne Moore in all ways for always.

      Namaste 🙂

      1. And you too, Dewin. I am so glad to visit your blog and find myself at home here. I took a ‘fan’ who came to visit me for the day recently up the Law. She loved it and took a ton of pictures. I feel the winds have blown me to a lovely blog here among the scarecrows and an even lovelier ‘blogger.’ I can’t wait to see to see your posts. great to connect with someone who loves a city I am proud to come from x

      2. Hey Shehanne,

        It’s entirely our pleasure and always will be to welcome you here. The gate to our field stands open and a place is reserved for you whenever you wish to hang awhile with us.

        Thank you for your charming company and kind comments. The community we participate within on WP allows us to meet many truly wonderful people with beautiful souls and enlivened spirits.

        Fascinated to read about you entertaining a ‘fan’ for the day! That is superb, we love the sense of full-on interaction and the idea that friendships can extend beyond the written word into the reality of our lives. Perhaps if Dewin ever heads that way again, he’ll drop you a line and perhaps get to share a cuppa or two with y’all in Broughty.

        Until next we meet on a Blog site near you, take care of one and all and enjoy the wind that carries you ever onwards towards new discovery.

        Namaste 🙂

    1. Hey Shehanne,

      Thank you, Dewin would enjoy that very much as well.

      So until next time…keep a smile on your dial, Love in your heart, and ink in your ‘smexy’ romance-writing quill. Happy blogging!
