The HOPE Project is a free service for people over 55 years old living in the Dundee area. The service is open to people who own their own home as well as people who rent.
HOPE's main aim to to help older people feel less lonely and isolated by encouraging participation in local groups and activities as well as providing advice and support on a range of issues.
We also make referrals for support and services to help keep people safe, well, active and independent. Such as:
• Welfare/benefit checks
• Helping you look at other housing options if you feel you need to move
• Occupational therapy aids and adaptations to help you live at home independently
• Connecting you to activities or events in your area
• Community alarm
• Meal service / food train
• Befriending / morning calls
You can meet your Community Engagement Worker in the comfort of your own home on a day and time that suits you. The service is open to people who own their own homes as well as people who rent.

Here are just a few comment from people who have been involved with the HOPE Project
"I’m now in receipt of Attendance Allowance, an extra £82.30 per week! I’m delighted as I wasn’t even aware I was eligible."
"I had my Medical priority reassessed, my priority was changed to high. I now live in a sheltered house."
"I no longer need to move home, as a level access shower is now being installed."
HOPE is a collaborative project by Hillcrest and Caledonia Housing Associations and is funded by Dundee Health & Social Care Partnership.
