About Right There
We are Right There, a charity that provides tailored support for people, at home, and in the community. We are here for people who are living with the effects of homelessness, poverty, addiction, or family breakdowns.
Rooted in the hearts of local communities across Scotland, we support people on their journey to creating a safe, supportive place to call home. We help individuals and families affected by homelessness, and improve mental health and wellbeing through mentoring and counselling.
We want to challenge stereotypes – it doesn’t matter what the situation is – we’re not here to judge, only to help. Our approach is about creating trusting relationships and nurturing people’s strengths, and our 200 dedicated staff, mentors and volunteers play a crucial role in this.
We are here to offer the right support at the right time, including breaking down financial barriers; accessing the private rental market; linking up with local health, employment and training services to help people make connections within the community; and helping people feel happier, safer, and more confident to take steps to improve their own lives. Every person’s story is unique, and everyone’s route home is different, so we tailor our response to the individual.
Our community roots as a charity go back almost 200 years. We believe our work is more important than ever and we are looking to grow our support (no matter how big or small), so we can prevent more people becoming homeless and being separated from the people they love.
A world where everyone has an equal chance to create a safe and supportive place to call home.
We meet people where they are in life with no judgement; walking alongside those who need support, and preventing them becoming homeless or separated from the people they love.
