Our Pledge to Help the Homeless
At the Glasgow Bed Centre, we have made a pledge to ourselves, our customers and the lovely people of Glasgow to try and help the homeless in our city.
According to the charity Shelter Scotland, 29,894 households were assessed as homeless by their local authority in 2018-19. This equates to a household losing their home every 17.5 minutes.  One homeless person dies every week in Glasgow according to figures from Glasgow City Council and we believe it is our responsibility to try and stop this.
At Glasgow Bed Centre, we have decided to commit 25% of our profits to assisting to combat homelessness in the city. From funding soup kitchens to donating mattresses to shelters, we are committed to helping make a difference.
Do you know a charity scheme that we could support? Let us know please. Help us in our pledge!
