Star Project

Charity registered in Scotland SC028133

How we work
We successfully deliver a consistent and varied programme of creative group and individual supports to community members within Renfrewshire from our base in the North End of Paisley. All our work is robustly evaluated and monitored and feedback from community members, partners, volunteers and staff shape the development of everything we do. Our strong and dedicated team have a passion for the work of the Project and we believe this is fundamental to our continued success.

Underpinning our work is a commitment to:
Building genuine positive relationships
Being inclusive and accessible for all
Meeting people in their need, not just meeting their needs
Being realistic, optimistic and positive
Believing everyone has endless potential
Ensuring universal access
Working in a holistic and non-judgemental way
Empowering people to be in charge of their own life
Facilitating a safe space
Supporting people to see and seize opportunity
"If there was a STAR Project in every Local Authority, many of Scotland's social problems would disappear."

Current opportunity

Volunteer Role: We are looking for volunteers to join our delivery teams helping with distribution of food to the local community. Our community fridge has seen a significant uptake during lockdown and we continue to support our community in Paisley and beyond. Recruitment Process: We will arrange to meet with any new volunteer and chat them through the procedures of the role. We will provide volunteers with a procedural document that outlines their role and responsibilities and also the support they can expect from us here at Star. Hours Expected: At the moment we do all deliveries Tuesday - Friday from 1-5pm. We have no limitations or expectations of how many hours people can do during these times. We would very much prefer that the time given is volunteer led.
