Funding Available for Local Organisations

Are you an organisations in Dundee that is planning upcoming activities involving local carers and their families?
We have money available to fund activities, that was raised during the Carers of Dundee Christmas Tree Festival in 2019.

Carers of Dundee, in conjunction with DD-One, launched the inaugural Dundee Christmas Tree Festival – “Caring about Christmas”.

Local businesses and charities purchased and decorated their trees in a fun and creative way to reflect their various brands and the trees went on display to the public in the Wellgate shopping centre.

Proceeds from the sale of trees and from donations and raffles during the event were designed to support the work of organisations in Dundee, supporting the City’s unpaid carers.

In total, £2,560 was raised from the sale of trees and £757 from raffle ticket sales and donations during the event which gives us £3,317 available.

COVID 19 has delayed us making this funding available however, we are now in a position to distribute these funds.

As the funds were specifically raised to improve Carers Wellbeing, we are inviting bids from organisations for small projects or activity costs which can demonstrate they will meet this aim. 

Whilst it is hoped a number of partners can benefit in a small way from these funds rather than all funds going to one organisation, we are not putting a maximum limit on the funds you can apply for.

In the event we are over-subscribed, a small panel will review the bids and prioritise those which most closely meet the funding aims. The funds will be administered by Dundee Carers Centre.
