Providing children in Perthshire with a range of winter clothing to keep them cosy and confident this winter. #WarmWeans2021

by Social Flock in Perth, Perth and Kinross, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 18th November 2021 we'd raised £630 with 24 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

New stretch target

Any additional funding not spent directly on Winter Warmer items and delivery costs, will go towards our other clothing projects and general costs of running Social Flock.

Do you believe every child should be able to feel warm and dry throughout winter and have a fantastic festive season? Do you think children should be able to play outside no matter the weather, be able to arrive at school dry, and be cosy at home? If so can you spare £5 towards a Winter Warmer Pack for a child in need this Christmas? 

(psst if 100 people donate £5 we will have reached our target! Small donations make mighty impacts!) 

Our Winter Warmer Pack offers 

  • a waterproof jacket 
  • rain or snow suits (for under 5s) 
  • hat, scarf and gloves
  • wellies 
  • slippers 
  • dressing gown 
  • pyjamas or a onesie  
  • socks   
  • slippers

During the application process families can personalise their packs so what we offer comes in colours or with characters the young person will feel special wearing. We also endeavour to ensure we meet any sensory requirements for our applicants. 

This winter families need more support than ever.  With 1 in 4 children already living in poverty in Perthshire and cuts to Universal Credits, increase in fuel and food costs, and the end to the furlough scheme more children will be pushed below the breadline. We want to be part of the support network to empower families to have the standard of life they deserve.

We’ve already received over 200 applications in the first week of launching all of our Winter Projects.

Perth and Kinross Foodbank
Citizens Advice Bureau
All PKAVS services,
Schools and Education groups across Perthshire, and many more partner services.

Families can also self refer to ensure we can reach as many young people in need as possible.

Who are we?

We’re Social Flock. We’re a small group of volunteers who work together to reduce the impact of poverty on our community, and reduce our reliance on fast fashion. We achieve this by providing free packs of pre-loved and new clothing for young people across Perthshire. We believe in our #PowerfulPerthshire!
