"If there was a STAR Project in every Local Authority, many of Scotland’s social problems would disappear" Scottish Book Trust.

STAR Project is a registered Scottish Charity based in the North End of Paisley who in 2012 won the ROCCO (Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards) Award for Third Sector Recognition. STAR's vision is safer, more connected and resilient families and communities where opportunity is equal and diversity is embraced. STAR provide a holistic approach offering a varied programme of group and individual support to individuals and families within their Community.

At the heart of STAR's success is their volunteer led Drop In which takes place Monday to Thursday 9.30am to 1pm. The Drop In establishes an open door so people can seek help or advice on any issue but essentially also functions as a social place where people can be themselves, without condition or expectation, thus reducing isolation and nurturing peer support.

STAR support the community and the aspiration of partners with a mixed programme of therapeutic, educational, and fun groups and workshops improving creative and cultural capacity, wellbeing, and reducing isolation. STAR also provides one to one support, counselling and befriending to community members. All referrals are welcome from partner agencies, friends or simply when someone walks in. STAR work with individuals to tailor supports that suit that individual and what they need at their own pace. All STAR's work is robustly evaluated and monitored and feedback from the community, partners and staff shape the development of everything they do. STAR's strong and creative team have a passion for the work of the project which is fundamental to the continued success.
