RF Global Solutions believes that businesses play a strong role in both their local community and the wider business community. As an organisation we are very active in supporting charities and community schemes both locally within Scotland as well as contributing to foreign charities which are from time to time recommended to RF Global Solutions by the customers which we serve.
RF Global Solutions are delighted to support Esteem Clydesdale. A small charity based in Lanark is working to end the stigma of mental health problems and to reduce the number of suicides.
RF Global Solutions are delighted to announce a three figure donation to help support the work of Epilepsy Scotland. In Scotland 54,000 people live with epilepsy. Children and older people are most at risk of developing this common serious neurological condition but anyone can develop epilepsy at any time, and 8 people a day in Scotland do. We want to make sure the needs of people with epilepsy are met. This is why they campaign for improved healthcare, better information provision and an end to stigma. In April 2008 Enlighten, Tackling Epilepsy merged with Epilepsy Scotland.

Quarriers has been providing care for 140 years. Now that’s something worth celebrating. In 1871, William Quarrier founded a charity to help children whose lives were blighted by poverty and loss. 140 years later, the way in which children, young adults and families receive help has changed. However the goal of providing hope, encouragement and support remains the same. Quarriers’ 140th anniversary is a time to reflect but also to plan ahead. We’ve won a special place in the hearts of many people and we hope to continue doing so for another 140 years.
The STV Appeal is committed to helping children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland. The shocking fact remains that 220,000 children in Scotland lives in poverty. In its first two years the STV Appeal has raised £3.3 million. This has allowed us to invest in 98 big and small projects across all 32 local authority areas in Scotland, helping over 9,000 children.
The STV Appeal works closely with Scotland’s leading experts in the field of child poverty, sharing knowledge and expertise with both small community groups and national charities on their experiences of addressing the challenges of child poverty in Scotland.
The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Scottish SPCA) is Scotland’s animal welfare charity. Our objectives are to prevent cruelty to animals and encourage kindness and humanity in their treatment.
As an animal welfare charity, we receive no government or lottery funding and rely on public donations to continue our vital work rescuing and rehoming Scotland’s abandoned, neglected and defenceless animals.
Scottish SPCA Inspectors save thousands of domestic, farm and wild animals from harm and danger every year, while our vets and staff in our wildlife and animal rescue and rehoming centres look after, rehabilitate and rehome thousands more.
Visit our online animal rehoming section to view some of our dogs needing new homes, rescue cats and other animals for rehoming, including rabbits and other small animals.
In the year 2000 a small charity was established by the name of Pump Aid. Its founder Ian Thorpe, had been a teacher in a poor village school in Zimbabwe. He, like everyone else, had to walk a mile to collect drinking water in buckets from an unprotected source. Due to a shortage of firewood and the high cost of paraffin, most people did not boil their drinking water, so there was an outbreak of dysentery when a snake fell into the water source and decomposed.
Rockwall County, Texas is a rural community that lies 22 miles east of downtown Dallas. It is the smallest, but fastest growing county in the state, and the fourth fastest growing county in the nation. Drawing much of its growth from Dallas, Rockwall County’s growth rate was seven times as fast as the nation’s average of 1.1 percent.
Although this rural county’s economic development board aggressively seeks commercial business and industry, it remains a bedroom community, with the majority of its citizens commuting to Dallas or other surrounding towns. Many of these commuters’ children are home for several hours without adult supervision. For community organizations this translates into few corporate dollars to meet charitable needs.
Young people everywhere need safe places to go after school for structured, stimulating, and adult-supervised activities that are physically safe, emotionally supportive, developmentally challenging, accessible and affordable. Some fortunate families are able to locate and afford such places, but many parents cannot afford these services, and their children are at risk of juvenile delinquency such as early experimentation with sex and substance abuse, truancy, poor grades and or educational failure. This takes a tremendous toll on communities both socially and monetarily, and for rural communities with fewer resources, the toll can be even greater.
