DUNDEE CITY EAST MSP WELCOMES FUNDING AWARD
I'd like to offer my sincerest congratulations to Caledonian Housing Association who have secured an impressive £149,788 from the Big Lottery Fund Scotland.
I am of the understanding that this money will be used to help continue and expand their Volunteering and Befriending programme which works to help reduce isolation and loneliness amongst older people. I have been advised that this is done through a variety of activities delivered in Caledonian Housing Association properties, such as IT work, knitting groups and lunch clubs.
I commend the work that they do and wish them all the best for the future of this programme.
