Our aim in these pages is to provide comprehensive information on all the services that we provide to homeless and vulnerable people of all ages and on our campaigning and strategic planning activities.
Four Square (Scotland) is a charity involved with the rights and needs of homeless people in Edinburgh and the Central belt of Scotland. We manage key homelessness services, and work with other agencies to promote quality homelessness services and campaign against policies and practice adversely affecting homeless people.
