Our Projects

Magpie is a not-for-profit second-hand furniture shop that promotes a more sustainable way of living - providing the Aberdeenshire community with the chance to reuse, recycle, upcycle...and find a unique bargain.


AVA’s Community Volunteering Enterprise, funded by the YPG fund, has the aim of working with young people, especially those who have faced challenges in gaining paid employment.

Helping Hands

Our Hospital Homecoming project aims to help people coming home from Hospital who need a bit of extra support and do not have  anyone who can assist them.
