Transform lives


‘You helped me find a way to live… I would not be here without you.’

At GCP, we believe in a world where people can reach their full potential, feel positive about themselves, valued and connected to others and the wider community. Your fundraising helps us continue to provide support, opportunities and nourishment, to help save the lives of people who are suffering many complex challenges, including homelessness, poverty, mental health issues, social isolation and physical abuse.

A word from Helene van der Ploeg, our CEO

‘The continued rising cost of living is having a huge impact on the most vulnerable people in Edinburgh. We have never seen such a demand for our services, and it will only get worse as we come into the winter months. Your fundraising is vital, enabling us to continue to support those who are suffering. The money you give really does save lives and makes a lasting difference to so many – THANK YOU!
