Port Community

As a Trust Port, our purpose is to create prosperity for generations and the local community is one of our key stakeholders.

Central to this commitment is our supPORT-all community action proramme. We partner with local charities and community group to provide project funding, as well as support with time, resources, or equipment, to help those most in need.  


Since 2014, Port of Aberdeen’s supPORT-all programme has awarded £800,000, benefitting more than 210 local initiatives and supporting over 200,000 children and adults across Aberdeen. This includes partnerships with a wide range of organisations including Big Noise Torry, CFINE, Cultivate Aberdeen, Denis Law Legacy Trust, Fittie Community Development Trust, Greyhope Bay, Inchgarth Community Centre, Sue Ryder and more.

“Port of Aberdeen’s continued commitment to their supPORT-all community action programme is a wonderful example of how a business can make a significant difference over time to their local community. This helps charities and community groups close to the Port to provide a vital lifeline of funding and support ‘in-kind’, especially during these challenging times.”

Funding in Action

It’s important to us that our funding has impact.

Here’s how two of our latest beneficiaries, 55th Aberdeen (Kincorth) Scout Group and Aberdeen Foyer plan to use their awards. 

“The supPORT-all initiative is a prime example of how Aberdeen's businesses can support the third sector.”

Sup-PORT-ing The Denis Law Legacy Trust

The Denis Law Legacy Trust supports and empowers young people to be confident, capable, independent and responsible citizens. Their flagship Streetsport programme delivered free sports and creative sessions for young people, five nights a week, 50-weeks a year. 

Funding from the Port of Aberdeen allowed the trust to buy new sports kits for young people living in Torry. The new kit, chosen by programme participants, is used week-in, week-out. It has been key in bringing young people into a positive environment which in turn, has helped to reduce antisocial behaviour and nuisance phone calls to the local police and fire services. 

We were also able to offer the support of our communications department who stepped in to help with advertising and recruiting more volunteers to help run the sessions.
