Please note that this list is not exhaustive - there are many additional opportunities out there and we are happy for you to pursue those that suit you best.

What your support means
...pay for one space at our Rising Stars group for a family who is at particular risk of isolation.
...fund one space for a parent and infant to attend a baby massage session to support parent/child bonding.
...fund a Home-Start Aberdeen volunteer’s first visit to a local family in need of support.
...pay for a session’s worth of healthy snacks for families attending our Rising Stars group, which is for parents and children who are at particular risk of isolation.
We completely understand that sometimes it is simply not feasible to make a financial contribution.
Many organisations generously offer their services in kind as an alternative.
We also offer a variety of volunteering opportunities, for organisations who allow staff time off to volunteer as part of their CSR commitment.
