About Aberdeen Cyrenians

We support anyone affected by social exclusion, hardship and homelessness.

With the help of the local community, Aberdeen Cyrenians has been providing support to vulnerable people in the city for the past 50 years.

Through a range of services both in community and residential settings, the support focuses on:

  • Prevention of homelessness - through outreach support and advice
  • Alleviation of homelessness - through short-term and medium-term accommodation places along with Housing First programme
  • Rehabilitation - tackling underlying issues such as domestic and sexual abuse, substance misuse and mental health
  • Resettlement - practical help to learn the skills needed to live in the community, sustain a tenancy and gain employment.

The charity aims to help people to make planned changes in their lives, often at crucial periods of transition. All services are provided on a voluntary basis in recognition of people’s rights to choose if they want to access the support provided.
