STRIDE UK
Address: 110 Restenneth Drive, Forfar, Angus
DD8 2DD
Long Business Description:

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.
