The First Base Agency is a small independent charity based in Dumfries in the south west Scotland
Since then the number and variety of services has expanded significantly. Our support projects not only help families but also women at risk of violence as a result of addiction problems, and veterans who have been drawn to drink and drugs as a means to deal with battlefield demons.
Our public information work involves us in giving drug and alcohol awareness presentations to over 2500 primary and high school pupils. We also offer training to support agencies and businesses, work closely with the local media and give talks to a variety of community groups.
Each year we issue over 1200 food parcels to those in need and give ‘signposting’ advice to over 300 visitors to the Agency.
Our support projects can help families, veterans and also woman who are at risk of violence
