Full Description

Start Up Stirling exists to support local people who are suffering from poverty, financial hardship, homelessness, and distress. This incredible charity strives to help people going through difficult times and endeavours to improve their quality of lives. Life is unpredictable and anyone can find themselves in unexpected hardship, more often than you may think, with over 9,500 people in the Stirling area who suffer from income deprivation.

By providing emergency food banks to over 300 people, including children in the Stirling area, Start Up Stirling are a lifeline to many who would otherwise go hungry, and last year alone, over 100,000 meals were delivered to people in desperate need of food. Losing paid employment, unexpected bills, family breakdowns, illness, and losing benefits can all cause people to experience financial difficulty and this charities support service provides a safe space for people to explore how to improve their situation by giving advice on money, fuel poverty, addiction, and social isolation. Start Up Stirling have been working tirelessly for 25 years to continually support those suffering deprivation in their local area and believe that together we can make a difference to help local people who are going through a difficult time.
