Backed with a board of music industry professionals and experts in social activism, Scottish start up social enterprise Turn The Tables have announced plans for expansion after a successful pilot run in Edinburgh last year. With a focus on mixing records, the group – founded in 2018 by Cyrenians volunteer Robbie Tolson – support those who have experienced homelessness by delivering workshops that build mental health resilience through a holistic approach to wellbeing.
The group hope to help support even more people facing homelessness across Scotland and beyond – but they need financial support. An estimated 320,000 people are considered homeless in the UK and this number is expected to rise even further as a direct result of the economic and mental health impacts of Covid-19.

Turn the Tables are also delighted to announce that Bushwacka! has become their first ambassador. The legendary DJ – who recently began working as a therapist – has started his own ‘Listen Up Therapy’ to provide therapy and counselling services to people working within the music and entertainment industries.
Bushwacka! said: “From my years djing to working within mental health there is something about the project that has really resonated with me. I have fundraised for homelessness charities in the past, so it is an honour to be supporting the work that Turn The Tables do.”
