Starter Packs Glasgow are working to alleviate poverty across the city.
Starter Packs Glasgow have been helping individuals and families across Greater Glasgow for the last 21 years. We provide over 60 items in our packs such as crockery, kettle, toaster, pots, pans, bedding, towels, toiletries and cleaning products. They are available by referral to anybody experiencing poverty, often after being homeless, fleeing domestic situations, moving on from the forces, prison or care. Our packs allow people to settle into their new home more quickly, reducing the chances of having to leave the tenancy – helping to break the cycle of homelessness.
We do this through the help and support of our local community, much-needed donations and the many staff and volunteers we’re lucky to work with.
We have two shops - The Magpies Eye and Magpies Nest are both on Burleigh Street, just off Govan Road next to the Govan Cross Shopping Centre. We sell vintage and modern furniture, clothing, books, toys, jewellery, local crafts and and white goods at affordable prices.
