About us

 

We are Right There, a charity working to prevent people becoming homeless and separated from their loved ones.  We are here for people of all ages who are living with the effects of poverty, addiction, or broken relationships.

Walking alongside people, we provide tailored support at the right time for people, at home, and in the community. Our approach is about creating trusting relationships and nurturing people’s strengths, and our more than 180 dedicated staff and volunteers play a crucial role in this.

Our areas of focus are:

For People: Providing counselling, mentoring, and family relationship support to those at risk of social inequality.

At Home:  From emergency accommodation to housing support – we provide safe and supportive places to call home.

In the Community: We equip people to live independently, and build stronger community connections.

Our journey as a charity goes back to 1824 when we were formed, later becoming part of the YMCA movement in Glasgow. Now, almost 200 years later, we recently launched a new chapter as Right There – and we believe now is more important than ever that we can be right there, helping people find their way home.
