We are passionate about loving our neighbours and we put a lot of our resources into supporting and bringing hope to people in our area. 

When Queen Victoria first visited Royal Deeside in 1847 she wrote that "all seemed to breathe freedom and peace" and through Deeside Compassion, we want that sense of freedom to be the experience of all in our local community. 

We do this by supporting individuals and families who live in the Royal Deeside corridor to the West of Aberdeen, and who are struggling due to disadvantage.

Our aim is always to bring hope, and where possible to empower and support people on a journey towards independence.

food & fuel.

We understand the difficulties many families are facing because of the cost of living.

Whether you need help putting food on the table or you are struggling with fuel costs we will look to help where we can.

The main ways we can help are through our Restart Social Supermarket, and small grants which we offer at different points in the year.

If you are interested in small grants then please follow our Deeside Compassion social media, where we post details of grants as they become available. You can follow us on facebook (here) or instagram (here).

If you are in a low income household or are struggling with debt or another financial issue,  please check out our dedicated Restart Social Supermarket page using the link below to find out how to get help with weekly groceries.


finances & wellbeing.

Ever felt the pressure of finances or other issues? We'd absolutely love to come along side you and support you on a journey towards improved finances and/or better mental health.

That's why we run a range of courses, including CAP Life Skills courses & Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing Groups.

CAP Life skills is a friendly group that will give you the confidence and decision making skills needed to live on a low income. You’ll learn practical money saving techniques, such as cooking on a budget and making money go further.

Kintsugi Hope wellbeing groups are a safe and supportive space for people who feel or have felt overwhelmed, providing tools for self-management in a facilitated peer mentoring style setting. Types of issues covered include disappointment, anxiety, shame, & resilience.
