We rely on the generosity of others…



A new tenancy is a first step, an opportunity, but it is only a beginning. By supporting our work, you can help someone who has been homeless change their life.

Even a small donation will make a big difference - £5 will buy pots and pans to cook a hot meal; £12 enables us to offer a cooking class for 4 people giving them the skills and confidence to cook healthy meals; and £20 buys electrical Packs with toasters, lamps and kettles that give warmth, light and comfort - the list goes on…

You can make a one-off donation by clicking the button below, or you can contact our office 0131 476 7741 or admin@freshstartweb.org.uk Please also think about Regular Giving, this can be every month, or once a quarter or once a year, but knowing we have this regular income is a huge help to us. If you would like to know more, please give us a phone or an e-mail.

Thank you!
