At Silver Stag of Scotland, we wholeheartedly embrace Aristotle's belief that economic exchange should benefit both parties. Your purchase not only grants you a piece of Scottish heritage, be it something beautiful, playful, or practical, but it also enables us to extend support to communities worldwide. This commitment represents a significant shift, turning your purchase into a powerful contribution to communal responsibility and a more balanced society for all.
Silver Stag of Scotland operates as a Community Interest Company (CIC), a social enterprise with special features designed to serve the most vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals. We ensure that any surplus generated directly benefits the community, not private shareholders.
Our Journey: Established in 2013, Silver Stag aimed to make a positive impact on the lives of those facing extreme social and economic disadvantages, both locally and globally. Our success is measured by the transformed lives rather than accolades or publicity. To achieve our goals effectively, we have partnered with local organizations that share our vision and objectives.
Partnerships and Impact: Since inception, we've been supporting two Scottish charities working with individuals affected by social or economic difficulties. In 2014, we created a tartan for STAND International to raise awareness of their impactful work in Scotland and other countries. The tartan serves as a poignant reminder of our solidarity amid global challenges.
As part of our ongoing support, we invest in pre-employment and vocational training, empowering individuals to enter the workforce or contribute as skilled volunteers. Our goal is to provide sustainable solutions to the social problems linked to poverty, offering training, positive role models, and a chance for individuals to take control of their lives.
Diverse Initiatives: Over the years, Silver Stag has initiated various programs to address community needs, including a food production center, property development services, a cookery school, and a community greenspace project. Each initiative operates under the common goal of providing sustainable solutions to poverty-related challenges.
