Euan AitkenFor nearly 50 years, Cyrenians has served those on the edge, working with the homeless and vulnerable to transform their lives by beginning with their story, helping them believe that they can change their lives, and walking with them as they lead their own transformation. The name Cyrenians comes from the biblical story of Simon the Cyrene but Cyrenians was founded as and remains a secular organisation.

Our Vision is an inclusive society in which we all have the opportunities to live valued and fulfilled lives. We work to make that vision a reality by our Mission to support people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey.

Edinburgh Cyrenians is in my opinion one of the most progressive and enlightened support organisations out there.  The combination of reflective practice and a genuine desire to help people with multiple support needs is rare in the landscape today.  My experience of them is a humane one which does not trade off the dignity which people need against targets and key performance indicators.  I know they run multiple projects which provide manys and various opportunities for people to engage and build the individual’s capacity for independent living or reaching a place in life which allows them to find some solace. This organisation I recommend as a gold standard of how to support people through turbulent waters. If I had a million pounds they’d be getting some of it!!!
