About us

We are one of Aberdeen’s leading family support charities.  Every year we provide practical and emotional support to around 200 families with young children in Aberdeen. We help them to create a secure and loving home environment where their children can grow up happy, healthy and confident, and able to achieve their full potential 

More About Us

Home-Start, building a future and supporting early connections 

Get support

There’s no rule book for raising a family and sometimes it can feel overwhelming. Every day Home-Start Aberdeen is providing life-changing support to families across the city. There’s no judgement, just compassionate, confidential help from our trained volunteers, backed by expert staff.

Our charity shop

Over the past 10 years our shop at 101 George Street (opposite the old John Lewis building) has built a loyal customer base and a reputation as one of the best charity shops in the city. For shopaholics it’s a great place to bag a bargain. Need to declutter? Donate your unwanted items to us to give them a new lease of life.
