Move On

Move On is marking our 20th anniversary in 2017 with a series of initiatives, launched at our Food and Training Depot on 23rd June – click here for Daily Record article.

From our bases in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Move On works with vulnerable young people and those affected by homelessness.

We offer a range of services providing advice, training, guidance and support enabling vulnerable young people and those affected by homelessness to unlock their potential and achieve a range of positive outcomes. These positive outcomes include; securing or progressing towards a job, accessing and sustaining a home, building confidence, growing support networks and increasing life skills.

Fareshare
Edinburgh
UK

Move On’s FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland works with the food and drink industry to minimise fit-for-purpose surplus, fresh, frozen and long-life food going to waste and distribute it to not-for-profit organisations working with the most vulnerable people in the community across Glasgow and the West.

FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland supports the most vulnerable people in the community by supplying a network of not-for-profit organisations, known as Community Food Members, from our Glasgow warehouse.

We are also in the process of setting up “spokes” across the West of Scotland – collection points for local organisations in those areas. We have already set up these spokes:

  • Ayrshire
  • North Lanarkshire

We are keen to establish spokes in other areas of need across our region (see map).
