Visual stories from Aberdeen’s third sector

Challenging Poverty in Aberdeen: a film by ACVO TSI

Challenge Poverty Week

October 2022

In this film, ACVO, the third sector interface for Aberdeen City, look at three organisations working to alleviate the strains of financial pressures placed upon our communities by the rise in the cost of living.

 Jean Gordon of Befriend a Child, Jane Akadiri & Paula Fraser of Touch of Love Outreach as well as Sharon Forsythe of Cairncry Community Centre share stories of how their work supports some of the most vulnerable families and individuals in the city.

 The work and efforts of their organisations provide vital lifelines for those who need it most at a time when being able to afford life’s basic provisions is becoming increasingly challenging.
