The Woodcraft Folk Dundee & Forfar is an independent charity based on a national movement that exists to empower and educate young people and children.
The Woodcraft Folk is built upon principles of peace, friendship and conservation.
We work to uphold and promote these principles by running regular activities both outdoors and indoors with children and young people locally.
Talking Point provides a relaxed, safe, non-judgmental environment for men to talk about their state of mind and how it affects their lives. There is no requirement to speak, but we recognise the challenges and stigma of mental health difficulties, particularly among men, and hope to provide a place to help change this.
Meets 7pm, 1st Wednesday each month, currently at Laing Park, home of Carnoustie Panmure FC. Tea & coffee etc provided.

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.
ANGUSalive’s BE ACTIVE…live well programme is part funded by NHS Tayside and links the health services with sports facilities. Referrals can be made by any health professional including doctors, health visitors, practice nurses, physiotherapists and dieticians. People can also self refer by completing the referral form which can be downloaded and printed from our website.
This is a focused exercise programme aimed at the older adult and/or those within a specialist group who have to manage a long term condition.
The programme may benefit those who haven’t exercised before or who have not been active for some time and just don’t know where to start.
The benefits of being physically active include reducing the risk of a range of diseases, e.g. coronary heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Helps maintain a healthy weight, helps maintain ability to perform everyday tasks with ease, improves self-esteem and reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Please see our website for more information about physical activity opportunities currently available: https://www.angusalive.scot/sport-leisure/be-activelive-well/
