About TLC

At TLC our vision is to help care for our community. We believe in meeting the real needs of people in food & social poverty across Aberdeen.


To combat food poverty, TLC foodbank (in partnership with the Trussell Trust) holds food drives with local retailers as well as operating permanent food bins to raise food donations. We then make up food parcels and distribute the parcels amongst people in need with the help of local charities, statutory, health bodies.


We also help take care of community parks and spaces by getting volunteers and materials together for cleaning, maintaining and changing outdoor and indoor spaces. Sometimes a lick of paint goes a long way.


To combat social poverty, TLC is working in partnership with 'Aberdeen City Council, Alzheimer Scotland and ACVO to provide a befriending scheme to tackle loneliness & isolation that some members of our elderly community are currently experiencing.





We take pastoral and community care seriously! We want to know about issues that affect our city. We will work closely with Local charities, agencies and community action groups to help make community spaces better and more accessible. In doing this we want to initiate a family and community atmosphere.


Through the hard work and fund-raising of our volunteers and community we will put all of our efforts back into Aberdeen.


"I was in an abusive relationship with a guy that caused my family to reject me. I had nowhere to go and ended up staying with this guy because there was nowhere else. I met one of the TLC workers in Union Square and started to meet everyday to sort out my circumstances. By this time I was in a Bed & Breakfast and classed as homeless. I had no address, so couldn't get a job to raise money; I couldn't get a place to stay because I didn't have a job. There really seemed no way out until I found TLC"
