COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

With COVID-19 developing in so many countries around the world, our commitment is to adhere to the latest advice from Public Health Scotland and UK Government advice.

The therapies are currently operating as normal. The well-being of ladies we support, volunteers and service providers is our absolute priority. Getting the information of the number of positive cases and following advice from the government in relation to COVID-19 and social distancing we have decided to move most of our face-to-face therapies and programmes to virtual sessions, which will allow all our beneficiaries to continue their healing journey and therapy progress , despite the impact of the COVID-19 disruptions. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and loyalty, HSTAR promises to continue to support all of our women with their trauma/abuse overcoming journey. 

If you have any concerns or any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the charity team at

By spreading the word about our tiny charity gift shop, we can reach out to new potential customers. These customers may be interested in buying our unique and ethically sourced items. This will help to generate additional revenue, which can then be used to cover trauma recovery therapy expenses for women.When you buy something made by a person, there is something special there, and you feel it. The consciousness with which a thing is made is often more significant than the thing itself. Buying local also supports small businesses, which are essential to a healthy local economy. These small businesses are often family-run and rely on the support of their community to thrive. Support them this Christmas and help to keep the tradition alive.The impact of buying handmade extends beyond the economic aspect. It also holds the power to make a difference in the lives of individuals affected by trauma. Many organizations and initiatives focus on empowering women who have experienced various forms of hardship and trauma. Through the creation and sale of handmade products, these women are given opportunities for personal growth, healing, and financial independence.#supportlocalbusinesses #mentalhealth #traumasurvivor #traumaawareness #givingback #creativity #artistry #beauty #hstarscotland #stirling #craftmakers #Hstar #stirling #forthvalley #Christmas #giftidea #UniqueGift #forsomeonespecial #withlove #handmadewithlove ...
