About the 50p challenge

More people than ever before are coming to us for help, and we need your support to ensure that we can be there for everyone who needs us. We're asking pupils in Scotland to join us in raising awareness, and taking up the 50p challenge!

Our 50p challenge resources are built in line with the curriculum for excellence. They include: an assembly on 'home', lesson plans, suggested reading, fundraising ideas, and a totaliser poster.

With 50p from all pupils, together we can make a huge difference to homeless families.

Don't forget to let us know how you get on - we can send your class a certificate for their hard work. We've got plenty to get you started - visit our 50p challenge campaign page to download the resources and get going!

Support

If you have concerns that a pupil in your class, or their family, may be affected by homelessness, bad housing, or poverty then please contact Shelter Scotland or visit the advice section on our website.

By speaking to a trained Housing Advisor, you'll be able to signpost the individual or family to relevant local services who can help, or pass them our details.

We’re here for everyone, but only with your support
