You’re not aloneBringing up a family on a low income is a huge challenge, especially in a city like London. At ScotsCare, we care about everyone in the community, including those with families who are struggling to make ends meet. Our first role is to be there for you when you need help with practical solutions, advice that is relevant and even helping you have a break from your routine.
At ScotsCare, we know that it’s the little things that can make a difference. That is why we provide you with practical help that can go a long way to ease money worries in the form of grants or the provision of essential household items. Those on low income can be considered for:
- One-off provision of, for example, household items,
- One-off Children's grants to help towards the support and care of children, such as for school uniforms or funding towards a school event.
A chance to get away from it all
For struggling families, a break away can be a distant dream, unobtainable because of financial worries. We believe everyone has the right to have a break occasionally, which is why we organise family trips at Christmas and during the summer holidays, giving everyone a chance to relax and enjoy themselves.
Just a phone call away
ScotsCare’s guiding principle is the promotion of a sense of community. For families living on the poverty line, isolation is a real problem that can impact everyday life. ScotsCare reaches out to every Scottish member of the community, providing a link to a network of like-minded people, all with similar stories to tell and all with first hand experience of life in London as a Scot.
Whether it’s advice on claiming benefits, childcare for working parents, healthcare or just a friendly shoulder to lean on and someone to talk to, ScotsCare is here for you.
