How we help…

We identify those in need

We work with local non-government organisations and voluntary sector organisations to identify individuals who are experiencing a crisis of some kind.

We support those in need

We can provide financial support directly to individuals in crisis in a way that preserves their dignity and lets them know that we care.


Due to Covid-19 we have no events planned but we will post an update as soon as this changes

Thank you for funding my trip to London to get my passport renewed. Without your help I wouldn't have been able to make the trip and therefore would not have been able to start working and stay in Scotland. 

Grace and Jim

forthgiving helped us achieve our dream of creating a sensory garden for our 2 autistic children. It has been a huge success and we are eternally grateful for what you did for us. Thank you!


"Thank you for the brilliant news about the funding for Christine . She will be thrilled!"



"That's great news! Thank you very much for your grant - it's very much appreciated and will make a big difference to Hugh and allow him to get about much more easily"


"That's wonderful news. Thank you so much for fighting Callum's corner. Much appreciated"

Team Around the Child

"On behalf of the family, thank you so much for the generous grant. I have seen the new doors within the home which give a lovely finish to the main rooms. The family are all back together again and residing intheir own home much to their relief. This was just in time for the beginning of the new academic year. 

As a result of the progress in this case, Social Work Services have closed their involvement with the family. They remain supported by the Team Around the Child. Once again , and from all the family, thank you for your support."


We gave the applicant a grant for new bunk beds for their children.

Child “They are so good. We can hide under the bed. My old bed was really uncomfortable. The bunkbeds are much more comfy. I can sleep better now”


Jenny “brilliant – the weans love them. They are sleeping a lot better now. He would always be in my bed as his bed was broken so he sleeps in his own bed now which is much better”
