AberNecessities provides disadvantaged families with the essential and basic necessities that No Child Should Go Without.

From maternity bundles for mother and baby to nappies, formula milk, clothing, toys and equipment for children aged 0-18 years, AberNecessities recognises the importance of meeting the basic needs of a child in order to give them the best start possible.

Our impact

Sadly 18% of children across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are living in poverty. The charity has seen an immediate and sustained surge from families with pre-existing vulnerabilities as well as from those experiencing loss of employment and financial insecurity for the first time.

Since launching in March 2019, AberNecessities has helped over 8,000 children across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. To us that means, over 8,000 full tummies, over 8,000 pairs of cosy hands and feet and over 8,000 smiles.

How you can help us

Your new, pre-loved items and monetary donations allow us to address the most critical needs of families experiencing poverty.  

Since launching in 2019, AberNecessities has distributed hundreds of thousands of essential items including nappies, formula milk, clothing, toiletries, cots, beds, and buggies across the North-East. We simply couldn’t do what we do without you.  From the bottom of our hearts – thank you.


AberNecessities relies on the support of both our corporate partners & individual supporters. Through monetary donations, event sponsorships, and funding our campaigns, you can make a significant impact on the lives of the children we support across Aberdeen City and Shire and bring about great change for the future of our community.
