For over 23 years Streetwork has been on the streets of Edinburgh, 365 days a year, reaching people living in the most desperate and destitute situations. Streetwork specialises in helping people recover from the underlying issues that result in homelessness and exclusion, issues that most often result from adversity in childhood.
