VSA has been caring for the people of Aberdeen for 150 years, and during this time we have supported generations of your families through two world wars, the Spanish Influenza outbreak, and the Aberdeen Typhoid outbreak. Today we are here for you, helping care for you or your vulnerable relatives ...
Established in 1870, VSA has helped thousands of the most vulnerable people and their families living in our communities across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Today, VSA provides vital support and services to people of all ages across four core areas, Children and Families, Adult and Community, Education and Learning, and Carers’ Support. At VSA we support a person’s physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing through a range of residential and outreach support services.
We are incredibly proud to be able to say that 95p in every pound donated to VSA is spent on direct charitable activities.
Across all of our service areas we support the most vulnerable people in our communities living with:
- Complex learning needs
- A mental health diagnosis
- Loneliness & isolation
- Additional support needs
Through these services, VSA supports the most vulnerable people in Aberdeen to develop the skills, opportunities, experiences, and environment they need to realise their dreams and lead more independent and integrated lives.
