Somebody Cares in Aberdeen

The cost-of-living crisis has already had a devastating effect on a huge number of people in the Northeast. As prices continue to rise, we are horrified to already be hearing of many cases where people cant afford to eat or heat their homes.

Story

Our city is already in crisis, demand for our services is increasing on a daily basis. Residents from all areas of the city and shire are falling into the poverty trap, suffering from poor mental health and long-term illness. Domestic Abuse, stress, debt, and an overall feeling of helplessness have all risen and the need for our services is increasing at an exponential rate.

Somebody Cares has adapted their services to meet the demand, our new building will see a huge increase in the support we can offer in these worrying times. We will continue to provide all of our services FREE OF CHARGE to those who need us. We will provide free furniture, food, clothing, toys, baby items and household essentials and soon those who need us will be able to access our Domestic Abuse area, Work Clothing Services, use our counselling suites, visit our multipurpose areas, Friendship Café or attend Foodbank cookery lessons designed to encourage healthy eating even in a crisis.

It is critical that we keep our building and services open for those in need. In our 20 years, we have never seen a need like this on our doorstep. We appeal to you today, please, donate whatever you can to help us help those in need.

Thank You
