Description: Cyrenians, supporting people excluded from family, home, work or community. Family and People - We work with families to build resilience, resolve issues and repair relationships. We run a befriending service for over-50s to help them stay connected in their communities. And we provide a safe and supportive environment for people on their journey away from addiction. Home and Housing - A commitment to tackling homelessness has been central to Cyrenians mission from the founding of the charity. We continue to build on this commitment, seeking innovative ways to prevent and alleviate homelessness, offering housing advice and providing supported housing for young people. Work and Skills - Cyrenians provides supportive employability services that equip jobseekers to move into work across Scotland. By supporting those jobseekers who face barriers in accessing jobs, and by offering skills and training, we not only assist our clients into work but we keep them in employment and away from benefits dependency. Community and Food - We have a range of services and social enterprises that teach people about the health and economic benefits of growing, cooking and eating good food together in our local communities. Our Fareshare project redistributes food to local good causes which would be destined for landfill and our Food Education programme provides classes with 'hands on' activities that encourages healthy eating and promotes social inclusion. This in turn allows those who attend to move towards a more settled lifestyle. To find out more, visit our website www.Cyrenians.scot

You can support any of the 200,000 UK-registered charities.
Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live Online, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
