In essence, the means Care About Angus will always act in the best interest of the people involved and provide a unique person-centred service: always positive and actively caring.

The hub is open 5 days a week, Monday to Friday from 9:30am- 4pm, and offers sessions ranging from arts and crafts to sporting memories.

The aim of the forum is to provide current information (and be a referral for past records) of Birds, Mammals and Cetaceans in the Angus and Eastern Scotland area. This is done via a forum which is open to the public and where sightings can be posted and viewed. Sightings are obviously not guaranteed but filtered as best as possible, and news regarding sensitive species may be edited if need be. It is also a handy place to post your photographs, ask questions, meet local wildlife enthusiasts and promote local wildlife events.
