As a school, we encourage our pupils to be aware of the needs of people both "at home and away", and to play a personal part in contributing to meeting the needs of both groups. To help that focus, we will often split funds raised between a charity or project which targets people in other areas or countries less fortunate than themselves and a charity that provides for the needs of people within our own community. East Renfrewshire Good Causes provides an appropriate vehicle for that as we know the money raised for them will end up helping the folk in need around us and we have been happy to contribute to their work.

Glasgow's Spirit of Christmas

Glasgow's Spirit of Christmas

Imagine waking up as a child on Christmas Day to no toys, gifts or a hot meal. Every child deserves gifts on Christmas Day no matter what their circumstances are. Now imagine that your generosity has turned that sad face into a bright happy excited child on Christmas morning. Giving is the true spirit of Christmas! Can you donate just one gift? Glasgow's Spirit of Chritmas children's gift appeal was created to support children living in poverty and hardship in and around Glasgow and launched at the end of October 2014. We would love to see a group in every region because the sad reality is that 1 in 5 children (210,000) right here in Scotland lives in poverty and that figure is set to rise over the coming years with a massive increase forecasted in child poverty by 2020. We want to make sure every child is included at Christmas and has a wonderful magical experience, even if for now..it's to light up one life for just one special day! You and your family can become a secret Santa to a local child in need this festive season. Join us on Facebook!

Give a Dog a Bone

Give a Dog a Bone

In November 2013, Parishioner Louise Russell set up a registered charity to support the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion. Her mission was to support individuals through loneliness, and animals through homelessness, by bringing the two groups together. It seemed like a simple solution to her, to two of societies prevailing problems - loneliness in our ageing years and the rising number of animals in shelter. If money is a genuine barrier to rehoming an animal, the charity can pay the rehoming fee and continue to support on a monthly basis, if need be, with the cost of pet food. To date, the charity has been extremely successful and has helped 80+ animals and individuals to have a brighter future! Through the charity, Louise has supported many people in various ways, including finding volunteer dog walkers for individuals who were too ill to walk them, emergency foster care for animals whose owners were taking into hospital and new homes for animals who owners had died or were suffering from terminal illness and were worried about their pet companion.

Education Improvement and Support Unit

Education Improvement and Support Unit

The focus of Activity Agreements is to support those vulnerable young people who have left, or are leaving, school and have been assessed as requiring first step engagement and intensive support in order to progress toward and into further learning, training or employment. It is a formal agreement either signed or verbal between a young person and an advisor that the young person will take part in a programme of learning and activity (once they have left school) which helps them to become ready for formal learning or employment. View a 3 minute video on East Renfrewshire Activity Agreements.

ENABLE Trustee Service Limited

ENABLE Trustee Service Limited

INSPIRE House, 3 Renshaw Place, Eurocentral, Lanarkshire ML1 4UF

Established in 1993, ENABLE Trustee Service, part of the ENABLE Scotland family, was set up in response to concerns of parents and carers about leaving an inheritance to their child with a learning disability. ENABLE Trustee Service works alongside other trustees who are often family members to look after the trust, but as corporate trustee is responsible for dealing with the investment and tax aspects of trust management. There is a common assumption that you must have significant amounts of money to put into a trust, however this is not the case. Many of our trusts are set up with the receipt of a parent's estate and this is often is the value of a standard house, car or modest savings account. If setting up a trust is something you believe will be beneficial to someone you know, please get in touch.
