Homeless and struggling with school

If you are homeless or living in poor housing, you might need extra support to help you at school. Here are some of the ways that schools have supported pupils going through the same thing as you:

  • Help with transport so you can get to school on time
  • Money to help your family pay for uniform or school trips
  • Free school lunches
  • Help to settle in if you have to move schools
  • Access to a computer if you don’t have one at home

Your family can contact Shelter Scotland for advice if you’ve got housing issues.
