Support for Start Up Stirling’s Home Starter pack service

Start Up Stirling’s support for people living in hardship began with our Home Starter pack service 30 years ago, for individuals and families who received the keys to their new tenancy, but had nothing to put into it. Their Home Starter pack provided the basics, such as pans, mugs, cutlery, kitchen utensils and crockery to help to make their house a home, as well as preserving precious funds for other bills, so that the new tenancy was less likely to fail.

Fast forward by 30 years, and our Home Starter packs are still part of our staple services to help people make a fresh start in their new home. The service is as relevant and essential as ever, as in 2023 Start Up Stirling helped to give 600 people a new beginning with their own home starter pack. Can you help us to continue to provide this service, by supporting our “30 items for 30 years” Campaign
