If you live in West Dunbartonshire and need to access any of our services please call us on one of the above numbers.
We are delivering emergency food parcels to anyone in need across West Dunbartonshire, our food packs include fresh, frozen, ambient, bakery and toiletries.
School Uniform Bank
We can provide new uniforms, school bags, jackets and shoes to those in need. This is dependant on funding and colour/size availability.
School Holiday Brunch Bags
During school holidays we provide brunch bags containing a breakfast and lunch for each day that the school is off. These are for children who would normally have access to Breakfast Clubs and school lunches. We are able to run this project due to funding from Cash for Kids.
We have access to Emergency Vouchers, which are for Gas & Electricity Top Up Meters. The vouchers are for anyone who is struggling financially. To apply you must meet our eligibility criteria.
Last year we provided 1334 children and young people with a large gift bag containing 8 - 10 lovely gifts. These children otherwise would not have have had the same magical experience as others at Christmas. We are able to help so many children with the support of Glasgow's Spirit of Christmas and very generous donations from the community.
In August 2019 we started a Babybank, using donations from the West Dunbartonshire community to provide baby clothes and equipment to families and local agencies working with children. Last year we supported 178 families. This project is also very much about recycling.
We would not be able to successfully run any of these Projects without the support of our many funders and also the generous donations from individuals, educational establishments, trade unions, council employees, churches, groups, supermarkets, shops and local businesses.
