Demand for the services that The Marie Trust offers is increasing daily as more people in Glasgow are affected by homelessness and exclusion.
Throughout the pandemic, we’ve continued to support some of the most vulnerable people in the city, providing access to counselling, accommodation, food supplies, mental health support, crisis intervention, pharmacists, health and wellbeing advice, education services and, importantly, a friendly face to talk to.
The donations from our supporters make a huge difference to the lives of The Marie Trust service users.

We’ve just signed up to the Glasgow Community Lottery to offer another way to raise much needed funds to support our relocation plan.
It’s a brilliant weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in the Glasgow area. Tickets cost just £1 per week. 50% from each ticket sold comes straight to The Marie Trust and 10% goes to support other local causes. Please join in.
Best of luck!
We’re partnered with digital charity box Roundups, who offer an innovative new way to donate to charities as you spend! Roundups works by rounding up all of your card payments to a whole number and then donates the pennies to a charity of your choice.
You can choose to round up to 10p, 50p or a £1.00. For more information and to sign up, please visit the Roundups site.
Help us alleviate and prevent homelessness with just one text message!

Homelessness doesn’t have to be a revolving door. Let’s end it now!
We’ve set up a Wish List on Amazon to give people another way to donate and support us. We realise that times are difficult for everyone just now and this is another very practical way in which our supporters can continue the work of The Marie Trust.
We’re looking for practical things like socks, underwear, coffees, snacks etc which will help the vulnerable people we support and some items which take a lot out of our budget such as take-away cups, food containers and PPE equipment.
We’ve also signed up with Amazon Smile, a new way of supporting charities without any cost to our donator.
The process is simple:
1.Carry out an internet search for Amazon Smile
2. Select The Marie Trust
3. Do your shopping online as normal!
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases.
