Angus Voice

The aims of Angus Voice are:

To influence the strategic direction of Adult Mental Health Services locally, regionally and nationally, and contribute to their overall improvement;

To support Contributors to become actively involved in the planning, development, evaluation and improvement of mental health services delivered by the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors in Angus;

To raise awareness of mental health issues within the wider community, including in Further Education establishments; and challenge the stigma associated with mental ill health.

Why is Angus Voice Important?

People with direct experience of mental health problems have a unique perspective and expertise. Collective advocacy is an opportunity to harness this expertise and use it to benefit and influence the ways in which mental health services in Angus are developed and run, to educate professionals and the public, and to empower and influence contributors’ lives.

 

We work across Angus, and our office is based in the Angus Independent Advocacy building at 60 High Street, Arbroath DD11 1AW.

House of Memories Monifieth

THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PROBLEM IN MONIFIETH FINDING ACCOMMODATION FOR MEETINGS.
It was the reason why MLHS initially, in 2004, leased the premises at 55  High Street, which resulting from donations of items  etc by members of the community developed into  Monifieth House of Memories / Heritage Centre.

One of the main attractions by the MLHS, and a valid reason for the lease application for the former Angus Access Office being the anti rooms, which not only would allow setting up for research etc, but also have available meeting space for other discussion / learning groups..

Monifieth residents are accustomed to travelling out with the town to find services on offer to those in other Angus towns.

In practice, this means we are a group of individuals who seek to follow the teachings and example of Jesus in the way we support and care for each other and the people of Monifieth. Through our worship, fellowship and service, we continue to grow into a family of friends.

Worship is conducted in the ‘St Rule’s’ building on Church Street at 11am every Sunday. This is followed by a time of fellowship over refreshments in the Gerard Hall. Everyone is invited to join us, regardless of age or stage of faith.

The Gerard Hall is used throughout the week for other activities, as well as being hired out to other groups for regular and one-off events. Regular activities are listed below, whilst one-off events can be found on our website, Facebook page, our magazine IMPACT (available at Monifieth Library) and advertised locally.

Scottish Badgers

Scottish Badgers brings together individuals and groups from across Scotland to promote the study, conservation and protection of Scotland’s badgers, their setts and natural habitats. Together, we seek to encourage tolerance and appreciation of badgers by offering information, advice and guidance to all.

Scottish Badgers is the only charity dedicated to the study, conservation and protection of badgers that operates in Scotland. Please note that Scottish Badgers is not affiliated with, or a branch of the Badger Trust. The Badger Trust is not involved in any work protecting badgers in Scotland.

Scottish Badgers is an independent Scottish charity. It was founded in 1999, with encouragement from the Scottish Government, who perceived a need for a non-statutory body to work in this field.

Scottish Badgers cooperates closely with the Badger Trust, whose activities cover all the other areas of the British Isles. It should be noted that only Scottish Badgers operates in Scotland.

Scouts East of Scotland

Our demographic covers the Local Authority Areas of Angus, Dundee, Fife and Perth & Kinross.  We have 6,257 youngsters enjoying Scouting across the Region, ably assisted by 2,106 Adult volunteers.
We are the third-largest of the eight Regions in Scotland, just behind Clyde and South-East Scotland.   
We have ten local Districts that are responsible for supporting the 370 Sections that deliver Scouting locally.  Links to these ten Districts (Arbroath & Montrose, Dundee, Dunfermline, Glenrothes & Levenmouth, Kirkcaldy, North Angus, North-East Fife, Perth & Kinross, Rosyth and South Angus) are given on the Districts Section of this website so if you need to contact one of them please use the contact information provided there.
The Districts are responsible for supporting the Progressive Training Scheme that all our young people follow and which links well with the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence programme. 
Our Badges and Awards encourage Successful Learning; our focus on the outdoors and residential experiences encourages Confident Individuals; our youth involvement policy encourages Effective Contributors; and our superb Community Impact projects develop Responsible Citizens.

Unfortunately, we have a lack of willing adult volunteers and as a result we have over 500 youngsters on Waiting Lists, desperate to join their friends in the adventures that we provide, but who are unable to do so.
We are fully committed to flexible volunteering, so whatever little time that you have or skills that you can offer, we’ll be delighted to make use of them.
Please use the JOIN tab on this website to express your interest in becoming involved.

The Regional Team are responsible for supporting Districts with some of the specialist functions – Adult Training; Adventurous Activities, Communications; Development; Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, International; and Youth Involvement.  Much of their role is in sharing best practice and providing guidance and advice based on their experience. 
We have a Closed Facebook Group that all adults with roles within the Region are encouraged to be members of and we use it to share ideas and advertise opportunities or resources that would benefit Scouting locally. 

Life-changing adventure and skills for life is what Scouting is all about. Scouting helps young people acquire practical, character and employability skills including:  

Teamwork
Initiative
Leadership
Independence
Resilience
Problem-solving
Communication
Responsibility. 

These are the Skills that Parents (and Employers) consider it’s important for young people to gain.

We know that those who are members of Scouting locally are gaining these skills and that we are contributing to their personal development, but we would like to be able to offer Scouting to more young people across East Scotland in the years ahead.   

Scouting is a part of our communities, not apart from it and each year contributes substantially to local charities and to local environmental projects and you can read more about this great work in regular newsletters and our Annual Reviews.   

If you are looking to contact Scouting, but are unsure of the most appropriate person to approach, please use this website and the Regional Team will endeavour to identify who can help you.

STRIDE UK
110 Restenneth Drive, Forfar, Angus
DD8 2DD

STRIDE is a registered charity (SC044225) which aims to relieve poverty and alleviate suffering of African people in Angus and Dundee city, Scotland and the wider UK.

STRIDE organises and coordinates events aimed at bringing together both African people and other people in the local neighbourhoods in planning on things like local community engagement activities, gardening activities, helping young people with career choices, signposting Africans to other agencies for support with problems such as abuse, gender-based violence, mental health and other social/economic problems.

STRIDE predominantly works in Angus and Dundee city councils.

Social isolation and loneliness are major causes of mental health problems and other anti-social problems amongst inter-generational African people in Angus and Dundee city. Due to their migratory pattern, some African families are isolated due to lack of extended families for support and lack of a community project to bring them together.
