Description

We would like to invite you to celebrate the launch of this community at the Social Bite Village. We will hosting a series of tours of the village between the 18th and 23rd of May, between 10am and 7pm daily.


** In order to reserve a time slot to visit the village please first select the date you would like to attend and then select the time you like to attend on the ticket. **


The Village project will provide a transition from homelessness back into society in a supported and nurturing environment for 20 people at a time. The project forms part of a jigsaw of programs that Social Bite are developing that will hopefully help 800 people out of homelessness over the next 18 months.

The creation of the Village is now nearing completion, with an incredible effort from so many people. Our partners at Cyrenians have co-created a bespoke support programme and we have identified the first residents who will be moving into the Village towards the end of May.

We look forward to seeing you at the celebration launch at the Social Bite Village, Granton (directions to be sent closer to the date). Please RSVP by registering through Eventbrite and picking your time slot before the 10th of May. We will then send you further information ahead of the launch. Any questions please do not hesitate to be in touch at events@social-bite.co.uk.

Organiser Social Bite

Organiser of Tour of the Social Bite Village

Social Bite’s vision is for a Scotland where everyone has a safe place to call home.

We provide free food and support to 350 of Scotland’s most vulnerable people each week via our social enterprise chain of 5 sandwich shops and ‘Home’ restaurant. We also employ 21 people with a background of homelessness and support many more homeless people to volunteer through our Social Bite Academy programme. We are currently building the Social Bite Village in Edinburgh which will provide a supportive community to people affected by homelessness and this year we are launching a Housing First campaign which will help to provide permanent homes and wraparound support to 800 of Scotland’s most vulnerable homeless people.
