Bethany Christian Trust and local partner Edinburgh City Mission have launched a care van which is a mobile community hub outreach.

It engages with people on the streets, providing them with a listening ear, move on advice, signposting, sustenance and warm donated goods.

The van, which was funded by a corporate donor, was custom designed and over 750 volunteers, including 50 teams from across Edinburgh and surrounding areas, are largely responsible for the smooth operation of the facility.
