Your school could help tackle homelessness in Glasgow

Pupils can learn about and tackle significant social problems in their city and enable the provision of much-needed practical help for homeless and vulnerable people by working in partnership with Glasgow City Mission. These learning experiences can easily achieve the Curriculum for Excellence Outcomes in particular ‘Responsible Citizens’.

Schools from across Greater Glasgow and beyond have been supporting us for many years tackle homelessness by fundraising or donating gifts in kind and have made a significant difference.

Ways your pupils can get involved

Fundraising

Not only do our clients receive significant help, your pupils will also learn more about the social problems in their city as a result and play an active part in tackling them.

Download our Fundraising Toolkit for more ideas, or contact Graham Steven, Marketing & Fundraising Manager for any ways in which we can help you.
