Promoting Positive Mental Health

Our Philosophy

The Pillar Kincardine approach is rooted in our long experience of working alongside users of the service as they make the choices that shape their own lives. It can be summed up as follows:

"We believe that people experiencing mental distress can direct their own journey towards improved mental health, and independent, fulfilling lives. Our role is to give people the tools and the support they need to achieve this".

The mission and values that underpin our day-to-day work and our long term goals are about:

History and Constitution

Pillar Kincardine was founded in 1989 as a result of the success of "Stepping Stones" and Pillar Aberdeen's provision of social and leisure activities for people within the city at a time when, within Aberdeenshire, little service existed beyond Community Psychiatric Nurses and 'generic' social workers. (Note: Pillar Aberdeen closed 29 August 2010 consequent on Aberdeen City Council's withdrawal of funding.)

From a modest starting base of 16 hours' project worker time, Pillar Kincardine has now developed to its current position employing a service manager and team leader assisted by an administration officer, support worker and volunteers – all part-time staff.

Pillar's organisational structure has likewise altered over the years to meet changing demands and we are now a Charitable Company governed by our own Memorandum and Articles of Association

Accounts and Policy Framework

As a caring and supportive employer, a responsible charity, and an open and transparent organisation accountable to our service users and funders, we maintain a comprehensive set of policies to underpin best practice.
