We're here to make a difference

We are working towards a future where people in Northern Scotland live comfortably, free from hardship, crisis, and instability and are instead equipped to realise and make the most of their potential. It’s our mission to create opportunities for people to find the right support, the best opportunities, in the right environment so that they can transform their lives.

We do this by providing a range of services including housing support, employability training, furniture provision and mentoring. These help people to not only get back onto their feet but to rebuild the foundations to ensure that their life remains stable and safe. See our annual report here.

Additionally, we work within our local community to ensure that items that were potentially going to landfill instead find a new home with people in need. This ongoing commitment to diversion has meant that we achieved industry quality standards
