Since 1995 Food Train Connects has been making daily life easier for older people, providing vital services to those who are no longer able to manage independently, through age, ill health, frailty or disability.
Food Train Connects makes hundreds of grocery deliveries every week, ensuring those most in need have access to fresh groceries.

KLSB are a local community group who were set up in March 2019 to help tidy up the green spaces of Larbert & Stenhousemuir.
On our very first litter pick more than 40 volunteers came out in the rain and helped rid the local park of over 100 bin bags worth or litter as well as many other discarded items.

Our aim is to support older people to live independently at home. Our preventative services address the difficulty older people face getting their weekly grocery shopping, doing jobs around the house and the growing isolation that comes with failing health. We also aim to provide a wide range of supported volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and ability and these include shopper, driver, delivery assistant and office assistant.
