Move On is a Scottish charity that works to support people affected by homelessness and to prevent homelessness, especially among vulnerable young people who face a higher risk of becoming homeless.
We support groups, such as young people from care/supported accommodation, young people attending Social Emotional Behavioural Difficulty (SEBD) schools and those at risk of disengaging from mainstream schools.
By working alongside people we enable them to develop the skills and tools they need to reach their own long-term solutions, by offering a range of practical and emotional support services that provides many people every year with the confidence, skills and abilities to get their lives back on track.

New Looked After Young People and Care Leavers Peer Mentoring Service
We are looking for young people who have personal experience of the care system to train as peer mentors to be matched with looked after young people 15 – 18 years old. The role will be to establish a positive relationship with the young person, provide informal support, encourage links with other supports/agencies and opportunities, to set goals and make and review progress towards the goals. The mentor’s personal experience of the transition from care will be an important factor in enabling the young person to manage this transition effectively themselves.
Move On and Merchant Lettings
Move On is pleased to announce their new charity partner is Merchant Lettings a property management and residential letting business with offices in Glasgow, the West of Scotland and Edinburgh.
John Hinton, Executive Director of Move On stated it is fantastic news that Move On and Merchant Lettings have joined forces. This is our first charity partnership and I believe that it will benefit both companies. The partnership will include Merchant Lettings staff becoming involved in fundraising events for Move On, beginning with staff members of both organisations taking part in the Women’s 10k in May and the Glasgow 10k in September. We hope this partnership will help raise the profile of Move On and the wide range of services we offer and we really look forward to working with the staff team at Merchant Lettings.
Roberto Taylor of Merchant Lettings presented a cheque to John Hinton of Move On, this was raised by a team of staff who took part in the Women’s 10k in May.
