Burghead Community Hall
A dedicated team of volunteers deeply committed to promoting and providing quality activities and services that contribute to the physical, emotional and social well-being of the community. Their vision is to enhance the quality of life and to fill the unmet needs of the community. Scotmid’s support will help them to provide this by completing the extensive and much needed renovations of Burghead Community Hall.
CANDU (Dundee Cancer Support Network)
A group of friends who have all experienced life with cancer. They understand the deep connections that can be forged between people with this shared experience and it is their wish to work together to ensure that other people living with cancer in our community are able to live the best life possible with a cancer diagnosis. They are determined to make sure that everyone in the city, who wishes to, can benefit from our Living Well With Cancer services which include social events, complementary therapies, counselling, mindfulness and lived experience activities. Scotmid’s support will help them to reach out to people in Dundee who wouldn’t normally be able to meet the costs of these activities or who might be socially isolated or restricted by cultural barriers.
Glenurquhart Care Project
Passionate about providing the best individual services to the elderly in their rural community in the bonnie Highlands of Scotland. They feel the same opportunities should be available to all, regardless of a postcode. This is why they have set up their “Free Transportation for All” project. They are seeking funding to secure the longevity of their current transportation provision, which sees them travelling up to 96 miles daily; collecting and dropping off elderly Service Users from their homes so they can attend the Day Care Centre. Scotmid’s support will help to ensure this free of charge service can remain in place to keep the most isolated connected to their own community.
