Rock Trust is Scotland’s youth-specific homelessness charity. Their aim is to end youth homelessness in Scotland by ensuring that every young person has access to expert youth specific services to assist them to avoid, survive and move on from homelessness. They advise, educate and support young people to enable them to build the personal skills and resources required to make a positive and healthy transition to adulthood. They also work to ensure that the public, policy makers, commissioners and practitioners understand the issues, make decisions and take action which will end youth homelessness. Find out more here.
Celebrating 30 years of Rock Trust, Scotland’s only charity committed to tackling youth homelessness, All the Way Home is an anthology of writing by both young people and established writers, including Kirstin Innes. Across poetry, fiction and essays, the idea of ‘home’ is explored from a variety of perspectives: a thirteen year-old girl comes to terms with her unplanned pregnancy; a group of immigrants from all across the world meet at a weekly Creative Writing class in Glasgow to discuss haiku; a new mother suffering from post-natal depression makes a life-altering decision. Together, this astonishing collection brings to life both the visible and invisible realities of home and homelessness, of family and belonging.
