Latest News!

Dundee Community Small Grants Award for Young Carers in Broughty Ferry!

The Broughty Ferry Locality Team were successful in receiving £600 (double of their £300 application!) to the Dundee Partnership Small Grant Award.

The team plan to use this to purchase resources for a group they have been running at the moment.
The young people have suggested the funding can be used for purchasing games/board games and art and craft resources.

It is hoped these support groups can be rolled out to other schools, as more young carers are identified.
