Rock Trust

Rock Trust is Scotland’s Youth Homelessness charity and has been supporting young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness since 1991. Our aim is to end youth homelessness in Scotland by ensuring that every young person has access to expert youth-specific services to assist them to avoid, survive, and move on from homelessness.

Rock Trust designed and delivered the first Housing First for Youth project in the UK and has grown the service in multiple areas across Scotland. Ensuring high model fidelity, Rock Trust’s Housing First for Youth projects support young people to access a permanent home without condition and provides each individual with non-time limited, flexible support for as long as they require. Whatever it takes for as long as it takes.

As of July 2021, Rock Trust has housed 39 young people through Housing First for Youth and has achieved a tenancy sustainment rate of over 92%.
