Optional Additional Pledges
Whether you are participating in the event or not we are encouraging you to one or more of the following pages to help eradicate homelessness in Scotland. If you are in a position to please pledge an employment opportunity, a spare room for a short time, and/or become a regular donor to Social Bite.
Supported Lodgings (spare room)
Offer a Supported Lodging
If you have a spare room in your house you can offer a homeless person what is called a "Supported Lodging". This will mean offering up your spare room for a short period of time. Our team will work with you and your family to support you through the process. The time period could range from only a few nights to a few months depending on what is most suitable to you. You and your family will be fully supported as you offer valuable shelter to someone in desperate need, helping get them back on their feet. Social Bite’s team will work with you and the supported individual to move them on to permanent accommodation. This is a successful project in England run by a charity called DePaul who are helping Social Bite bring the model to Scotland.
At this stage, we simply want people to pledge their interest in the program and we will be in touch with you to talk everything through and take it forward.
Job Opportunities Pledged
Offer an Employment Opportunity
If you are an Employer you can pledge an employment opportunity to someone from a homeless background. Social Bite employs 1 in 4 of our workforce from the homeless community and our team will support your business as you rehabilitate someone into mainstream employment and help them get their lives back on track. Our support team will work with your business to find a suitable candidate and help you to take this individual into your workplace. The pledge could be for a full-time job, a part-time job or even just some work experience. At this stage, we simply want employers to pledge their interest in the program and we will be in touch with you to talk everything through and take it forward.
We hope to generate around 1,000 job offers and 1,000 lodging offers through the event, which will in and of itself make a significant dent on the issue of homelessness.
