Scarf is an accomplished social enterprise, headquartered in Aberdeen, delivering a range of services to householders, businesses and communities throughout Scotland.

Launched in 1985, Scarf’s original aim was to eradicate fuel poverty. Although this purpose remains at our core, Scarf has developed into a professional social enterprise making a practical difference to individuals and organisations.

As an established social enterprise Scarf works closely with our staff, partners, businesses and the local community to ensure that everything we do makes a positive difference.

Scarf has been listed in the Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For five of the past six years and in the Top 50 Scottish Companies list for the past two years. We are a Living Wage employer and work with our partners to develop employability opportunities.
