Community & Learning
safer communities, joined up working
Our approach to communities and partnerships is to support and compliment the work that's already happening in communities across Dundee. We are bringing together access to a range of services in a single point, work with employers to build safer workplaces, deliver free training in the community around mental health and suicide prevention and more!
leveling the playing field
Young people with mental health and wellbeing challenges have some of the lowest access rates to higher/further education and skilled employment. We're here to tackle exactly that.
We believe that our young people are just as capable if properly supported
We believe that everyone should have the chance to flourish in work by receiving the proper support from their employers
We believe that everyone should have fair access to ongoing education, regardless of their background

‘Rise Up’ was a project where young people aged 12-17 had the opportunity to boost their confidence and enhance their skills in art and leisure-based activities. They also had the opportunity to engage with professionals who have an established career on a 1-2-1 basis. Young people had the chance to connect with professionals and build a network among organisations across the city.
As part of the Art Stream, we had a unique class with Mr Drew Photography, Dundee Ceramics Studios gave us Clay Kits to explore ceramic techniques, we visited many galleries across Dundee, and had workshops within our activity room for young people to develop their artistic practice.
The Explore Stream was the opportunity to discover new hobbies; such as video gaming, hiking, trampolining, football, treasure hunting, stargazing, and rock climbing. Young people had the chance to work as a team and build new friendships with like-minded people, and chat to professionals about pursuing the activity further.
