Good Causes

Not for Profits, Charities and Community Groups

Below are details of some of the charities, not for profits and community groups we work with locally.  Please feel free to click through from the links for each entity to see what they are all about.

We believe in community and giving back to good causes and will try and support organisations that need help where we can.

Bailliefields Community Hub

Bailliefields Community Hub SCIO was conceived in 2018 and constituted as a SCIO in February 2021. The charity has expanded the range and remit of the work in the local community that was already carried out by Westquarter and Redding Cricket Club.

The vision is to build on the work currently done with disability motivating groups and individuals to be part of an environment that is inclusive, safe and creates a sense of belonging. We aim to encourage participation in sport and social activities of the local elderly community that will tackle isolation and loneliness and connect the local community to the surrounding natural environment of Rumford, Ercall Woods, the Union canal and local cycle and walking paths. This includes promoting growing, biodiversity and cooking through community allotments. We will increase and enhance inclusion for everyone regardless of circumstance, socio-economic grouping, ethnicity and social background.

Ceangail CIC

Ceangail CIC is a social enterprise on a mission to inspire young people into tourism through our vocational training opportunities.

Our Funders Connect service for organisations allows us to create and deliver solutions that positively impact the community and create real-life practical training experiences for young adults. One of these has been delivery of the Stirling Highland Games event since 2014, which has created opportunities for many stakeholders. Our Team has over 2 decades of working successfully with organisations that create and deliver experiences with a social mission in mind.

Our Projects benefit several stakeholders as they connect communities; attract social investment; drive local economic growth; and provide vocational training opportunities for young adults aged 16+ as part of their journey towards employment.

S.M.I.L.E. Counselling

S.M.I.L.E Counselling first became constituted on 15th June 2015. Since then the Board of Trustees have worked tirelessly to get the organisation to where it is today. Now we are an official Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation and have begun delivering counselling sessions to local young people. We aim to be able to deliver a bespoke outreach counselling service to young people when they need it most.

Our primary goal is to help young people get to a good place in their lives where they feel Supported, Motivated, Inspired, Leading to self-determination and Empowered to make their own positive choices. 

Forth Valley Sensory Centre

Here at FVSC we run over 30 different groups and classes to help tackle isolation and loneliness within the sensory loss community of Forth Valley, welcoming over 500 people into the Centre weekly. We work in partnership with a number of local organisations to provide a holistic approach to sensory loss as well as providing training and hosting events to raise awareness of our Centre and the individuals we support.
