Polwarth seeks to assist the charity FRESH START in its mission to ‘help people make a home for themselves’. The words are simple, but behind those words are the passion and commitment of FRESH START staff, volunteers and donors to break the cycle of homelessness.



Fresh Start has developed services which provide support for those who have been homeless with the following Aims:

  • To enable people who have been homeless to resettle in their community;
  • To provide volunteering opportunities that offer practical and emotional support to our clients;
  • To help our clients develop life skills;
  • To involve church member and the wider community in our work to end homelessness

Polwarth Church works with Fresh Start through our Global Concerns group and would welcome anyone with a little time to spare.
