Ongoing groups and activities

Caring Places

Caring Places

Caring Places is a project funded by the Integrated Care Fund (ICF) to trial out a new way of engaging with unpaid carers in Dundee. The project is being facilitated by Animate Consulting.

There will be 4-5 small inquiry groups across Dundee, made up of carers and professionals. The groups will meet every so often over the next few months, with the aim of ‘inquiring’ about the current system: what is working well and what could be changed.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact Sarah Clark for further information:
sarah.clark@dundeecarerscentre.org.uk or call 01382 200422.
