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.
Throughout this process of expansion and change Pillar has successfully supported numerous members to become directly involved in the management of the organisation.
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. A full description of the legislative framework under which we operate, and links to individual policies, can be found in our Policy Framework section with its attached Policy Schedule.
