we are an anti-poverty charity
aimed at tackling the effects of poverty in Kinross-shire.

Established in 2013, Broke Not Broken began by collecting donated food and storing in a spare room, then a garage before moving to The Beacon where the food bank is now based. Then we sought funding for a counselling service, and then an advice hub. Each project that has been developed comes from conversations and feedback from clients. This participative approach ensures the projects are useful and meaningful. We operate within Kinross-shire, a rural area with a population of around 14,000, and an area with significant hidden poverty.

Get Involved

If you would like to volunteer your time and energy we would love to have you on board. You can also support us in the community, or by writing to your local politician and councillor about how they are working to end the need for food banks. There are lots of ways you can get involved. 

HOW WE
CAN HELP

We run lots of projects throughout the year to help relieve a bit of pressure. These include a School Uniform project at the beginning of the summer holidays, and winter clothing support in October. We can help with energy support payments with referrals, and energy advice (through our friends at The Heat Project). Lots of people need support at the moment, so please get in touch if you think that we can help by filling out the form below or getting in touch. Also if you would like to become a referral agent please fill out the form below.

We rely on the generosity of our community. Donations of money, time and food are all gratefully received.
