We provide a safe, welcoming play space for children under 5 and offer support and advice for mothers living in temporary accommodation.

We run a monthly housing rights clinic in partnership with Shelter Scotland as well as financial support, parenting advice and guidance and any other wrap around support that may be needed regarding issues that result from the experience of living in temporary accommodation.
