The Hope Project

HOPE is a free service for people living in Dundee, who are over 55, and do not live in sheltered housing. The service is open to people who own their home as well as those who rent.

The Hope Project has come together through a partnership between the following organisations:

 

What do we do?

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 older people in the community.

We also make referrals for support and services to help you keep safe, well, active, and independent. These referrals include:

  • Occupational therapy – for aids & adaptations
  • PIP & Attendance Allowance
  • Arrange home fire safety visits
  • Housing Options advice
  • Community Alarm
  • Meals Service/Food Train
  • Befriending/Morning Calls
  • Taxi Card applications
  • Dundee Energy Efficiency Advice Project (DEEAP)

Drop-in sessions

Come along to our social hub for a chat, a cuppy, and find out about different activities that happen in your local area. You can also find out about the various services that can help you in your own home. A Hope worker will be there every week to give you information about this.

Drop-in sessions take place every Monday from 10am to Noon at Menzieshill Community Centre, Orleans Place, Dundee, DD2 4BH.
