ScotsCare help Scots live in London suffering hardship, or seeking to rebuild their lives. We help these first and second generation Scots by providing; financial assistance, employment and training opportunities; a friendly face to visit them; social networks and housing.

We offer a range of services – from grants and training to housing and social events.

Every day we meet distressed men and women, young and old alike and listen to anxious telephone calls from Scots who need our help to overcome poverty; some are fleeing from violence and abuse, some are homeless and many are elderly and frail. Whether its lone mothers with young kids to support or young men who have lost their way and are seeking to rebuild their lives, all call on us desperate for help.

So, if you are one of the 340,000 Scots living in London visit our 'Help us' page to find out how you can help us with either a donation or by volunteering some of your time.
