Life can be tough, and if you are living in poverty and struggling financially then we might be able to help.


At VSA we support low-income households or households who are living in extreme poverty through our support services. We geographically provide support across all of Aberdeen City and support individuals, couples, and families.

Every day across Aberdeen people are living in extreme poverty and have to make difficult choices. Choices such as

  • Can I afford to put the gas and electricity on for hot water and heating?
  • Can I afford to give my children a hot meal?
  • Do I pay my rent/ mortgage for the month or do I buy the warm bedding and clothing my child needs to be warm?

Financial wellness is as important as our physical and mental wellbeing. If you are struggling financially to have enough money to cover your needs, then help is available.

When you are living in poverty, it can be an immensely stressful and worrying time when you experience money problems.
