Hillcrest Foundation

Improving people's lives and creating positive futures

Over the past ten years, Hillcrest has distributed more than £1.2 million to help improve the lives of individuals and communities experiencing financial hardship or other disadvantages across Scotland. Community is at the heart of everything we do.

Our mission

The Hillcrest Foundation’s goal is to improve people’s lives and create positive futures.

The Foundation enables Hillcrest to have a focused strategy for supporting individuals and communities by providing relief for those experiencing financial hardship or other disadvantages. Recognised as an anchor organisation in Scotland, we work in collaborative partnerships to ensure support is provided where it is most needed.

The Foundation supports activity in Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fife, Perth and Kinross, Aberdeen and Angus.

Our work strengthens and amplifies people’s voices and their power to make change and our Board of Trustees is ambitious, energetic, and effective. They work together to ensure they maximise the impact of the Hillcrest Foundation.

The Foundation’s objectives are:

  • To contribute to wider, social, economic and environmental wellbeing
  • To offer training, educational, employment and recreational opportunities
  • To create positive differences to the lives of others
  • To strengthen links between charitable organisations, community groups and individuals within our areas of operation
