Strathmore Lodge, Dundee, provides direct access emergency first stage homelessness accommodation and Burnside Mill, Dundee, is a converted jute mill that provides a resettlement service.
Strathmore Lodge and Burnside Mill welcomed a new manager this year, who has continued to build on the foundations established to develop the programmes in place. The past year has seen a significant development of the service user engagement programme, evidenced by the introduction of job clubs, service user-led forums, IT classes, creative media groups and a revamped resettlement programme, to name but a few. The other significant success is the expansion of the volunteer and furniture project, which actively engages up to 10 service users at a time.
Service Manager: Pamela Grant
