Introduction – The High-5 Club was formed to fill a need identified in the Monifieth area; it was found that there were many families in the community who had a child with High Functioning Autism (HFA) or Asperger’s who found accessing mainstream activities really difficult.
The idea to form a youth club with specific support for young people with HFA or Asperger’s evolved. With Monifieth Parish Church and Monifieth High School offering support and a home for the club, this idea became a reality.
The High-5 Club is like any other youth club; the one difference is that it takes into account the specific needs of young people with HFA or Asperger’s.
Young people with these conditions see the world in a different way from young people without the condition; they are sometimes misunderstood and can display a range of behaviours which may appear odd to others. Although they want to be involved in the same types of activities as their peers, these differences often prevent them from doing so.
The High-5 Club meets during school term time on Wednesday evenings in Monifieth Parish Church’s Gerrard Hall from 7.15pm to 8.45pm and is run completely by volunteers.
The club is self-funding but has also been very fortunate to have been the recipient of a number of charitable donations to assist with purchasing equipment and funding activities for the young people.
The age group for the High-5 Club is from S1 onwards but young people in P7 may also be invited to join the club to help support their transition to secondary school.
Volunteer Helpers – The Mission of the High-5 Club is to be a place where all young people can come together in an inclusive environment; can learn from each other through positive role modelling and can have fun and make friends. Volunteer Helpers are recruited from the senior pupils at Monifieth High School to run the club each week; they are responsible for encouraging positive behaviour and promoting fun activities.
Peer Buddies (volunteers of a similar age to the club’s members) participate in the club activities each week in the hope that by providing positive role models they will allow the young people with HFA/Asperger’s to feel more confident about building friendships within their peer group.
All volunteers receive regular training and are encouraged to take the lead in organising themed evenings to enhance their youth work skills.
Typical Activities – Most weeks, the club is set out in the same way as routine is important for young people with autism. Weekly activities include video gaming on Xbox, arts & crafts and board games. These activities give helpers and members the chance to chat about their interests in pairs or small groups, building confidence and communication skills.
Some weeks, however, there are more structured activities such as cooking, pizza and film nights and fitness sessions.
We also venture beyond the confines of the hall, favourites among the young people being cinema trips and occasional outings to local restaurants.
Join Us – To find out more about the club or if you are interested in joining as a member or volunteer helper, please contact Karen Morton, Telephone/Text: 07816 909466, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
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:
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 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.
