VSA, which marks its 150th anniversary, launched its COVID-19 appeal to make sure people in its 22 residential sites across Aberdeen do not feel alone or isolated. Although aspects of the lockdown in Scotland are being lifted, the charity still needs support to make sure the health and wellbeing of vulnerable people in our communities does not suffer.
Subsea market intelligence and consultancy company Archer Knight has donated £1,000 to VSA’s appeal.
Tablets to help older residents make video calls to loved ones, maintaining vital visual contact.
Entertainment trolleys which include interactive digital technologies to keep residents’ minds stimulated

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. VSA supports physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing through a range of residential and outreach support services.
