Community Matters

We have a strong commitment to the communities around our airport and aim to address issues of prime local concern. We aim to create opportunities for local residents to enjoy their local airport – even those who don't use it regularly. Aberdeen International Airport continues to build and strengthen its relationships with local communities.

Aberdeen International Airport is delighted to announce Kayleigh’s Wee Stars and We Too as its new charity partners for 2022/2023.

In December 2021 charities were asked to get in touch with the north-east’s major transport hub to put their organisation forward for a potential partnership.

A staff vote at the airport led to Kayleigh’s Wee Stars and We Too being appointed following the charities submitting a joint bid.

Kayleigh’s Wee Stars provides support to families where there is a child with a terminal illness through providing financial grants. Many families face increasing costs and unpaid time off work when caring for a terminally ill child. So, the basic purpose of each grant is to ease the financial burden on families during what is already an impossible situation so they can spend time with their child without the worry of money and make precious memories together.

We Too is a customer driven organisation empowering families of children with disabilities, providing a free, quarterly “What’s On” Guide for families with ASN children, peer support, a monthly children’s club and a school holiday programme as well as bespoke ASN/Customer Service Training to organisations and six-week parent/carer and sibling courses.

The partnership will see the airport commit future fundraising events and donations to the charities.
