About the project

The Lodging House Mission is a charity based in the East End of Glasgow.

We deal directly with the homeless, the socially excluded and those suffering from poverty in Glasgow.

Many of our Service Users are in the process of recovery from addiction. Some have mental health issuesand some simply find coping with life in the "Normal" way, beyond their capabilities.

Our non judgemental policy helps anyone who enters our doors. day to day issues include accommodation, finance, form filling, health issues, DWP problems, isolation and many other every day problems.

We need £5,000 to fund educational cooking classes for 1 year. This will show our users not only how to cook, but the healthy foods which are available at low cost.

Most of our Service Users have health issues, many of them caused by poor diet.
