Starter Packs

Registered Scottish Charity No: SC035752

Due to the risks from Covid-19 Starter Packs service may be delayed in the coming weeks affecting both deliveries and the making up of packs. Emergency packs are being made up to cope with any possible demand.

Please email for more information or to arrange a pack. 


Starter Packs aim to respond positively to help the homeless and people in need throughout Perthshire. We are an independent charity that relies on the support of individuals, local churches and organisations including CATH who take in our referrals and deliver them to clients.

We provide a basic selection of small household items to help improve the living conditions of newly rehoused individuals and families in Perthshire who are in difficult social and economic circumstances.

Items in a Starter Pack include:

  • Bedding including Duvets, Duvet Covers, Sheets, Pillowcases
  • Towels
  • Curtains
  • Pots and Pans
  • Crockery and Cutlery
  • We only accept referrals from agencies.
  • We can only deliver Starter Packs within the Perth & Kinross area.
  • We cannot issue a Starter Pack to the same person within a period of 6 months.
  • Starter packs are mostly made on Fridays and we can deliver Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
  • The client must be aware of and accept our privacy policy or we will be unable to process the referral
  • If you are referring a couple please put both of their names on the form and ensure they both agree to our GPDR terms.

There is a limited amount of Starter Packs available each week but requesting one is easy. To request a Starter Pack please follow the link and fill out the online form. We will be in touch with you shortly.
