A group of young people from the Bund Deutscher Pfadfinder-innen (BdP) in Germany dropped in to Four Square during their two week tour of Scotland. The purpose of their visit was to find out more about Four Square and the work we do with homeless young people in Edinburgh.

Imagine being 17 years old and think about what it would be like to have to move from place to place “sofa surfing” or having to sleep rough – out in the wet without even the price of a cup of tea to warm you up. People become homeless for a wide range of reasons, a great many of which are not their fault. Young people under the age of 25 are a particularly vulnerable group.

Four Square has received funding from the DWP Flexible Support Fund and City of Edinburgh Council Economic Development to provide a Foyer Service in our Accommodation Services. The Foyer Service aims to deliver direct, dedicated employability support and tenancy sustainability training to every young person living in our homeless accommodation.
