Make it Happen

Make it Happen works across both Menzieshill, Charleston and wider Lochee ward of Dundee, to inspire local involvement in developing informal volunteering opportunities that actually benefit the local people who live there. It is a grass roots approach and we want to support change to happen at a local level in the form of one off community events, workshops and enterprises that engage the community to learn, laugh and grow together!

Link Up

Link Up Whitfield is an Inspiring Scotland project, hosted by Volunteer Dundee, based at The Community Services Complex, 101 Whitfield Drive, Dundee. Link Up Whitfield is about supporting community members to come together and create groups and clubs that people can participate in and have fun. We want people in communities to come together, get to know different people, and help each other. All of the groups and activities that we currently support started with either, a small group of people or an individual, who had an idea that they wanted help with in their local area. We are here to provide all the necessary support, training and development to establish the groups, for as long as they need us!
