Our Virtual Hubs are now ... Let's Talk!

As we move to a “new normal” and many organisations across the city are returning to pre-covid services and opening hours, we thought now was the time to give the Carers of Dundee Virtual Hubs a rebrand.
“Let’s Talk” moves away from our original covid response to keep in contact with our followers while face-to-face services were unavailable while continuing to provide carers with information on services, latest strategic/policy developments, and help available to those affected by current issues.
