Encounter Everyday Essentials

by Modo - Circus With Purpose Ltd Claimed ( Self Directed Support, Clothing, Children & Families )

What is it?
Everyday Essentials is a free store of items that young people need but, due to personal circumstances, cannot afford.

Who is it for?
It is for any young person under 25 in Peterhead or surrounding areas who, for whatever reason, is in need of some everyday essentials.

Why?
Some young people find themselves in situations, through no fault of their own, where they have to go without things that most folk would consider essential.

Where is it?
The items are stored upstairs in Encounter in Drummer’s Corner, and can be accessed any time the Youth Café is open (Mon 4-8pm, Wed 6-8pm, & Fri 4-8pm), or at other times by arrangement.

What sort of items are there?
Clothing: jackets, hoodies, zippers, joggers/trousers/tops, pyjamas, onesies, socks, shoes, hats and gloves.
Toiletries: deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hairbrushes and sanitary products.
School Accessories: stationery, pencil cases and school bags.

How do I get things?
The service is free and open to any young person (whether they normally attend Modo, or the Youth Café, or not) and is completely confidential. Young people (and their adults) can just turn up, or get in touch by the methods below.

What next?
If you do work with young people that you think might benefit from this service, please do direct them our way. If there are young people who might need additional support in accessing the service, please get in touch and we will see what we can to help.
