it is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Starter Packs Angus will be closing its doors on Thursday 31st July 2014. The volunteers and Board members have worked tremendously hard to keep this worthwhile project going, especially over the last 12 months, but the core funding required to be able to allow us to give packs to those who need it most has not been forthcoming.
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.
