Hillhouse - Furniture

Description

Hillhouse - Furniture

Hillhouse is a unique social enterprise in Ayrshire working to support individuals and families experiencing financial hardship. 

We offer practical support by supplying good quality second hand children’s clothing, footwear and equipment. Our vision is to help alleviate hardship faced by individuals and families and make a positive difference in their lives.

Hillhouse fills a significant gap in service provision to our families and individuals facing financial difficulties at a time when they are most in need.

All profits made from our charity shop are reinvested into the charity but Hillhouse would be unable to function without donations of clothing and equipment. Therefore donations are essential to Hillhouse and can be donated at the following:

Interesting Info

Hillhouse began its life in 1975 as an organisation which aimed to care for homeless young pregnant women and new mums.

Our History

A house, located on Hill Street, Kilmarnock, was secured with the help of volunteers, and the local authority. The doors opened to accommodate up to 6 women at a time, who, under the guidance of professional and committed staff, received 24 hour care and support while they adjusted to their situation and prepared for motherhood.

Over the next 25 years approximately 150 young women were able to call Hillhouse their home. When they moved on they were given material help in the form of layettes, baby clothing and equipment.

2000 saw many changes including the building on Hill Street, Kilmarnock becoming a Children's Clothing Distribution Centre caring for babies and children up to 16 years of age. While no longer providing a home for young women, the charity has been able to support an increasing number of young families
