Ypeople's Golf Day

Friday 5th September 2014

Cawder Golf Club, Bishopbriggs 

Join us for our fourth annual golf day and enjoy playing a round of golf
on the challenging Cawder Championship Golf Course whilst raising much needed funds for Ypeople.

The money raised from this event will go directly to the people residing within our supported accommodation projects across Central Scotland. The funds will help us to bring a little light into people's lives and create opportunities that would otherwise not be possible and allow us to continue our support and provision of important services to vulnerable people whose lives have been affected by poverty, abuse, homelessness and family break up.

Who Are The Real Homeless from Screen Education Edinburgh on Vimeo.

This unique short film was made with lottery funding secured by charity Ypeople. They involved SEE (Screen Education Edinburgh) to work  with  residents of their supported accommodation service in North Edinburgh to make a film. 

Last year, 4251 people had to turn to city of Edinburgh council’s homeless service for help  Who R the real homeless?  is the story of just four of these thousands.. 

Kris, Jacqui, Bobby and Gordon, each tells his or her own unique story, of how they became homeless and about their experiences, good and bad,  of homeless services and public attitudes. Their stories reflect the sobering truth that homelessness can happen to all sorts of people, and for a range of reasons.

·         Take Gordon whose 20 years of settled family life ended as a result of relationship breakdown precipitated by job loss,

·         or Kris, who lost his job and accommodation at the same time as his relationship

·         or  Bobby, whose guitar playing provides the musical soundtrack for the film,  who was too ashamed of his alcohol and drug problems to seek help back in his home town from family or friends

·         or Jacqui, fleeing domestic violence and continued harassment, who lost the only settled home she had

The film shows that homelessness can in truth happen to almost anyone.

Kris, Bobby, Jacqui and Gordon also tell their experiences of the homeless services which while providing refuge from the streets, create another set of problems – in keeping relationships with children and family or friends, of stigma, and in job hunting when you don’t know when you will get a settled address again. These show the need for more prevention, for more individual and holistic responses to people at the point of contact, for more imaginative solutions, and for greater public understanding of their situation.
