SHAX is a local charity dedicated to providing support to people affected by homelessness and/or poverty.

We provide our clients with free Emergency Starter Packs and an Emergency Loan Service which lets them buy essential goods on a delayed payment basis.

To support our aims we run a busy furniture reuse warehouse based at Merrick House, The Crichton and a Town Centre Shop at 4 Nith Street.

SHAX provides positive and worthwhile volunteering and work placement opportunities for local people. We are a “Volunteer Friendly” charity. Volunteer opportunities available include Starter Pack Helpers, Warehouse Assistant, Retail Assistant and Sorter/Merchandiser.

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
