William Quarrier began caring for Scotland's orphaned and destitute children in the early 1870s. Today, Quarriers provide a diverse range of services in Scotland through more than 100 projects. Their staff have the expertise and experience to support and care for:
- Adults and children with a physical or learning disability.
- Children and families facing poverty, family breakdown, exclusion and disadvantage.
- Young people who find it difficult to cope with mainstream school or with growing up.
- Homeless young people experiencing exclusion, lack of self-esteem and a multitude of other daily problems.
- People with epilepsy requiring assessment, diagnosis and support for their condition.
- Carers of all ages needing support, advice or just a friend to listen to them.
- International development.
In Scotland today, thousands of people urgently need support and care to overcome physical, mental or emotional problems. But for many, especially those who are living in poverty, the support they are offered is of a poor quality, or it is simply not available at all. Those same needs exist in the rest of the United Kingdom and more widely the world.
Quarriers challenge inequality of opportunity and choice, to bring about positive change in people's lives.
