Providing the Best of Care in the Community
Based in Aberdeen, VSA is the city’s major social care charity. VSA has grown since 1870 from charities that operated with Voluntary Service Aberdeen, combining them to provide even better care and value for the local community today.
Message from Kenneth Simpson, VSA Chief Executive
As Chief Executive of VSA, I’m delighted to be able to head up a team of dedicated staff and volunteers throughout Aberdeen city and the shire who provide services to thousands of our most vulnerable people.
At VSA our aim is to put our service users at the heart of all that we do regarding our planning and the delivery of our services. That’s why we continue to be successful after 140 years of providing social care and support across Aberdeen city and the North East of Scotland.
VSA is Aberdeen’s major social care charity; in fact it’s the largest city social care charity in the UK. Its success has been in its innovative approach to merging and bringing other local charities together to ensure that the people in Aberdeen are provided with the best of care.
We cannot do this on our own. We need the continued support of hundreds of firms, individuals and groups across the city and shire as well as trusts and other organisations to help us raise the funds that we need – nearly £17 million every year – to ensure that we can continue to provide the best possible services to the most vulnerable people in our local communities.
