Starter Packs Angus (SPA)
was established by Scottish Churches Housing Action, Angus Council and local churches in 2002.
It came into being as a direct response to the serious problems of homeless.Needy individuals and families trying to make good in a tenancy may be unable to provide themselves with basic household goods.Being without the necessities for setting up house, or going into debt to acquire them, often results in tenancies failing and people being caught in a cycle of repeated homelessness.
The service provided by Starter Packs Angus is intended to help break that cycle. SPA provide a pack including utensils, bedding, crockery and other items to get people started in their own homes.
