Choices Aberdeen was established to promote positive relationships and support and empower people in making choices which will enhance their physical, emotional and relational wellbeing.  The charity’s initial aim was to provide a pregnancy and grief counselling service for those in a pregnancy crisis or suffering pregnancy loss.

The Therapeutic Listening services have been a core element of the service provision of Choices Aberdeen, and with growing demand in Aberdeen and surrounding area, our services are now accessible over the phone and online.

The second strand of our core services is our Relationship Revolution Project which is a youth intervention project.  With this service our volunteers visit Secondary Schools to promote and support positive relationships, engage with young people and give quality and relevant sex education using creative and challenging resources tailored to contemporary youth issues.


For individuals who have had actual experience of active addiction personally, as well as those who have been aected by a loved ones behaviours, and who are now in a place where they seek, have embarked on and or are actively involved in a, “Journey of Discovery” and have a heartfelt goal of establishing changes and initiating recovery as a reality in their lives. They will have read, understood and be willing to commit to and uphold the principles behind our Vision, Mission and Objective Statement and 10 Point Pledge. They will also have been informed of and assisted in an understanding of our Constitution.


Aberdeen Street Pastors work during the night-time economy in the city centre. We seek to listen, care and help those in need or have found themselves in difficulties.  In addition, we run a small team of School and Retail Pastors.

We are interdenominational organisation and draw our volunteers from 35 churches across the city and beyond.  Our aims are to bring peace and a Christian presence amongst night life community by building relationships and serving where we can.  Where appropriate we take those opportunities to share our faith and pray with people.

Our values include working in partnership and therefore we work with the police, city council, churches and the business community. Ultimately, we strive to bring a positive impression of the local church and relevance to the Christian Gospel to those we meet.
