On Wednesday 13th January S3 students met Sharon and Patrick from Rock Trust to talk about homelessness and young people. Through lively group work and discussion they debated the issues around homelessness and were given information on some of the issues faced by homeless young people in Edinburgh. They discussed ways of tackling the prejudices surrounding homelessness and how people become homeless.
Sharon and Patrick also met some of our young fundraisers who took part in the Sleep Out last year. S3 were very interested in their work and are now planning a visit to their centre to find out more about the work supported by our fundraising.
