The Hope Project is a free service for people living in the Dundee area. The project supports a wide range of people who have feelings of loneliness and social isolation, along with levels of frailty which may be due to age, ill -health or a diagnosed condition. The service is open to people who own their own homes as well as those who rent.
For some people, accessing the help they need can be difficult, especially if they don’t know what help is available, or where to find it.
The Community Engagement Workers will use their knowledge and experience of local facilities, services and agencies to provide support, advice, and signposting for people in the community.
We also make referrals for support and services to help you keep safe, well, active, and independent. Some examples of these referrals are;
Social Activities – attending groups in your local area
Housing Options advice
Occupational therapy aids and adaptations
Connecting you to activities or events in your area
Meal service / food train
Blue Badge and Bus pass applications
Morning call service
Home Fire Safety visits
The Hope Project has come together through a partnership between the following organisations – Dundee
