Westend Team

Vickie, Virginia and Colm are the locality workers for the Westend.

They work closely with schools and organisations in the area to help support carers within the local community.

Carers Decide Groupwork Programme

Carers Decide Groupwork is an 8-week programme offering an opportunity for carers to meet and learn from each other’s caring experience.
Sessions are facilitated by Carers Centre staff and are available online and face to face.

Young Carer Support in Schools

We work closely with schools across the city to ensure that young carers are identified and supported within their educational setting.

A named Young Carer Coordinator and Dundee Carers Centre Support Worker is linked to each school and can offer practical and emotional support to young carers and families.  Young Carers Ambassadors within some secondary schools can offer emotional and peer support to young carers.
