Charity of the year

Each year, Scottish Women in Business adopts a charity, nominated by members and selected by our President in consultation with committee members.

The money, support and awareness provided by swib makes a big difference to help the chosen charity. At each event, a donation of £1 per attendee is added to the amount that swib pays to the charity at the end of the year, but there are many more ways to help! Here's a round-up of all the ways in which we raise the money for our Charity of the Year. If you have any ideas on how swib can raise even more, please let us know using our contact form.

Charity 2018-19

swib's charity of the year for 2018-19 is Home-Start Glasgow South.

Home-Start Glasgow South is a family support charity striving to give young children the best possible start in life. They work with families to help them overcome issues including isolation, mental health difficulties, bereavement, family breakdown, addiction, physical ill-health and many others - anyone in fact, with young children who needs a little extra support.
They’ve been supporting local families across the south of Glasgow for 17 years and have grown to become the largest Home-Start in Scotland and one of the largest in the UK.

You can find out more about Home-Start Glasgow South on their website, and stay in touch with them by liking their Facebook page and following them on Twitter.
