Promoting and supporting local community and voluntary action

Our Vision

A socially just, healthy and sustainable Dundee that is culturally diverse where peoples voices are heard and power and decision making is equally shared.

Community Development and Engagement

Our priority is to get more people more connected with their communities – reducing social isolation and improving health and well being for all.
