Supporting the Fire and Rescue Service Family

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Family Support Trust (established 1923), is the oldest Fire & Rescue charity in the UK.  We enjoy a unique position as the only Fire Service charity, run within a specific Fire and Rescue Service, for the benefit of Service personnel and retired members and their families.

Over the years, our Charity has successfully aligned itself to the changing face of the Fire & Rescue Services.  Formerly known as Strathclyde Widows and Orphans Fund, we changed name to SFRS Family Support Trust and adopted SCIO status, following the reform of Scotland’s Fire and Rescue Services in April 2013.

Jock’s preparations are now well underway for his Mount Etna volcano summit, in August 2017.  He aims to raise £2000 for our Fire Service Charity.

Alex ClarkRed Hot Chilli Thanks

Once again, the Family Support Trust embraces the opportunity to work alongside our good friends the Red Hot Chilli Pipers. The Scottish Fire & Rescue Service are delighted to host the worldwide launch of the Chilli Pipers new Video and song, “The Fallen”, which pays tribute to all the firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11. Proceeds from this single will enable us to continue the valuable and meaningful services the charity offers to all staff and retirees. As the Chairperson of the Family Support Trust, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and their team for their ongoing support.” more »
