We’re delighted to announce that Steven has recently pledged his support for Homeless Project Scotland, by becoming a patron of this life-changing charity.
This incredible organisation has become a lifeline to the homeless people of Scotland – and never more so than now, as they battle the additional threat of Covid-19. The pandemic has hit this group of people particularly hard – without shelter or basic necessities, they are also left vulnerable to the virus.
Run by a team of dedicated volunteers, Homeless Project Scotland provides food and essentials to anyone living on the streets. Along with a friendly smile and a compassionate, listening ear. The team have even been instrumental in helping some young people to come off drugs and into employment, giving them the help they needed to turn their lives around.
Steven has long been a passionate supporter of homeless charities, a cause close to his heart. As a respected and much-loved artist, he is keen to raise awareness of the problems facing Scotland’s homeless population and to lend a helping hand. As Steven puts it, “It is my firm belief that nobody – but nobody – should not have a hot meal and a roof over their head.”
As a charity, Homeless Project Scotland relies on donations in order to carry out its vital work, bringing food, blankets and other essentials to those most in need. During lockdown, Steven donated 500 masks to the Homeless Project Scotland team for them to distribute among the people they are helping. This month Steven donated a Heather McCoo canvas to boost fund-raising. Steven and his wife Caroline will be going out with the Homeless Project team to help out on the streets.
