Welcome to Save Westburn House Action Group!

The Save Westburn House Action Group was set up by a group of driven community members, passionate to see Westburn House developed to provide core facilities for the community.  The building was designed by Archibald Simpson and is one of the outstanding examples of his contribution to the architectural heritage of Aberdeen. Sympathetic restoration will provide community assets (toilets, café, meeting rooms, educational centre and gallery space). The building is in very poor condition.  Urgent work is required to save it from complete ruin and restore it back to its former glory.

We have developed our vision of the future of this great house based on consultation with the local community, on understanding people’s feelings about the site based on their childhood memories and on creating a business model that makes Westburn House self-sustaining.  We have been delighted at the high level of local support for the principles of the project. At the core of our plans lies recognition of the work needed to bring the house into community use, and how to raise the funds needed to effect restoration. 

We are now focussed on fundraising to meet our ambitious targets. We can't do this alone, we need YOUR help, so that we can create facilities that meets the needs of the community and of which Aberdeen citizens can be proud - a building restored from near ruin to a thriving and exciting place to be. 

It is not going to be easy, we know this, but we CAN do this. We are genuinely passionate to see this Project through to completion and we want YOU to be part of this.

Thank you. The Westburn House Action Group
