Strategic Charity Partnerships

In March 2024, Port of Aberdeen launched multi-year strategic charity partnerships, with the objective of deepening the port's impact and fostering strong, lasting community relationships.

Our goal is to establish long term partnerships with charitable organisations, striving to create substantial and sustainable social impact while implementing mutually beneficial initiatives that resonate with our core values:

  • Safe and thriving communities – supporting those most in need in our community.
  • Supporting a sustainable future – tackling climate change in the North East of Scotland and beyond. 
  • Inspiring the next generation – supporting primary pupils to university leavers into STEM and maritime careers.

"As a thriving Trust Port in the city centre, we're ramping up our support for local organisations that provide vital services to our community. With the current high demand on third sector services and many facing budget cuts, we're responding with a solid commitment of significant, multi year funding and wider support to our new strategic charity partners."


Support for vital community services

"This recognition of CFINE’s work to alleviate poverty across our communities is hugely appreciated and we look forward to our two organisations working together to continue to make a difference."
