Sacro in Aberdeen have been working with Community Food Initiatives North East to help provide food for Sacro service users in crisis. The scheme provides Sacro with essentials as part of their FareShare scheme; food we can then distribute to our service users. Additionally, we can refer service users on to receive produce from their food bank as well as for emergency food parcels.

Annual Review 2012-2013 cover image

Sacro's Annual Review 2012-2013 is now available to download.

The review charts an exciting and productive year for the organisation which saw us deliver a number of innovative new services across Scotland including the advent of Public Social Partnerships (PSPs). The PSP model provides an opportunity for greater collaboration between voluntary and public bodies and Sacro has been a key partner in the design and delivery of three major new initiatives to tackle reoffending during the year.
