Stuff and Skills We Need

Would you like to work with us?


volunteerWe’re expanding our team! We support people who often experience stigma and exclusion. The challenge we face is giving people hope. We want to make life a little better for the people we work with. Can you help? Read more about current vacancies and our volunteering opportunities on our'Join Us’ page.


Office space in Glasgow city centre

Having enough office space in the right place in Glasgow City Centre is a constant challenge.

Office Space To help people in crisis, we need to be quickly accessible and have somewhere private to meet with them and other agencies. If you have a building with space you’re not using in the centre of Glasgow that we could use for our teams to have as a base, please consider helping us so that we can respond to people in crisis. To find out more email or call us.

Handy person

We need skilled helping hands and DIY.

We have a number of accommodation services across Glasgow. Within each building minor repairs and little jobs often need done to help us maintain a comfortable environment for the people that come to live with us. Getting these small tasks taken care of quickly and without huge costs is a constant challenge and can delay someone new moving in and stop them benefiting from the safety and support of the service. If you have good DIY skills in decorating, joinery etc and would be willing to give your time in the Glasgow area, please get in touch. For more information and to give us your time and skills please email or call us.
Handy Person


We want your surplus cases and holdalls.

suitcaseAll too often the people we support have lost or never really had many possessions to call their own, what they do have is often carried in plastic carrier bags and bin bags! Our services focus on helping people find somewhere to call home on a permanent basis. When they do, we want them to have the dignity of putting their possessions in a case and not a refuse bag. You can help give someone that dignity by donating any bags and suitcases you no longer use. We’d welcome small carry-on cases as well as suitcases preferably with the wheels and handle. To make your donation please email or call us.

Garden tools, furniture and green fingers

Our Maxwell Women’s Service has a large and potentially beautiful garden. At the moment it resembles Jurassic Park! We’d love to change this.

Wheelbarrow and garden toolsWe’d love the garden to be a lovely place to relax. Can you help us transform the space by donating plants, gardening equipment and furniture for the garden? For example a large table and chairs, swing, greenhouse, summerhouse, arbor etc. We’re looking for items that are in good condition. We also need some green fingers and strong backs to help us with the work. Would you be willing to help us clear the undergrowth and landscape the garden? To find our more, please email or call us.

Games and consoles

We’re looking for donations of games consoles and console games that we can use in our services.

games controllerWe will also be able to give these to service users moving into their own homes (e.g. xbox, Playstation and Wii). Any fun activity games would be great to organise within our services. If you have a new console you don’t need or an older one in good condition we’d make good use of it. We’d also welcome any games and controllers you have spare. To find out more please email or call us.
