Here at Warriors in the Community, collaboration is an integral part of our ethos, and we believe in the promotion of other charities. With today being International Day of Charity, this provided us with the perfect opportunity to shed light upon some organisations within our own local community, which work tirelessly and selflessly to improve the lives of others.
KLSB Community Group
KLSB stands for Keeping Larbert & Stenhousemuir Beautiful, so therefore we share similar values with them. We consider KLSB to be our ‘team-mates’ more than anything. KLSB provides support to over 80 households weekly throughout Larbert, Stenhousemuir and surrounding areas. They do this through offering subsidised groceries and emergency support referrals. KLSB also run weekly initiatives from our community Cafe including elderly lunch clubs, barista training and cookery classes. You can find out more about them here.
We also have a long standing relationship with our friends at Strathcarron Hospice, who help people across Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Forth Valley cope with illness. They are also heavily involved in the research & development of palliative care. You can read more about them on their website.
Maggie’s specialise in supporting people with cancer, all throughout Glasgow. They offer free one-to-one help, a safe and welcoming environment, which is situated directly across from the Beatson Centre. They also offer counselling to patients, which has proven to comfort the patient and their families. To find out more on them, click this link.
Kidney Kids Scotland
Working as a Charitable Trust since 2000, Kidney Kids help specialise in renal illness in children. Their main goal is to provide children with a space for treatment close to home, and that minimises family disruption. They work hand-in-hand with The Royal Hospital for Children to help provide essential equipment for those that need it most. To read more about their great work, click here.
The Salvation Army
A various range of services is provided by The Salvation Army such as supporting people who are homeless, offering budget and debt advice, and helping people cope with the cost of living. They are an established charity who have been working in local communities for over 150 years. You can find out more about them here.
Alzheimer Scotland provides support to people suffering from dementia, and to their extended families and carers. They also fund important research into dementia, whilst operating 25 dementia resource centres across the country – you can find your closest centre (and further information) here.
