Pillar Kincardine was founded in 1989 as a result of the success of "Stepping Stones" and Pillar Aberdeen's provision of social and leisure activities for people within the city at a time when, within Aberdeenshire, little service existed beyond Community Psychiatric Nurses and 'generic' social workers. (Note: Pillar Aberdeen closed 29 August 2010 when Aberdeen City Council withdrew its funding).
In 2017, history almost repeated itself when Aberdeenshire Council redesigned its service delivery model and withdrew its funding of small locally based services.
From a modest starting base of 16 hours' project worker time, Pillar Kincardine has now developed to its current position employing a Service Manager and Project Worker assisted by an Administration Officer, Support Worker and volunteers – all part-time staff.
Pillar's organisational structure has likewise altered over the years to meet changing demands and we are now a Charitable Company governed by our own Memorandum and Articles of Association.
