On 31st October, we were given just a few weeks to remove all belongings from our previous premises in Midland Street. This has had a direct impact on many of the services which we offer. We now have a funding shortfall of £50,000 to find a new one.
More than ever, we need your help in order to continue providing our crucial services to the homeless people of Glasgow.
So please, if you can, think about giving us a donation. No matter how big or small it will make a difference and help to secure the future of the Marie Trust.
Full Website Coming Soon
We’re working hard to build our new website. We’ve got some exciting developments coming soon to show you.
Until we’re ready to go, we’ll keep sharing our news with you on our Facebook page. Join us!
Your Donations Count
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 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, coffee, 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.
