Community Connections is a project based at Wellmeadow House in Blairgowrie which aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness in the local area.

By providing social groups and activities the project aims to provide support, improve social contact and enable local people to become more connected within their own community.

We have successfully piloted a number of community events, which have become regular features in the community programme, including:

A Bite ‘n a Blether

Free, informal community lunches held at SCYD’s Wellmeadow House Café

The Comfy Café

A weekly drop in for a cuppa and a chat with access to support and information from other services.

Festive Lunch

A Christmas meal served in partnership with the local Friendship Café and the Social Work Department. Other seasonal events will also be planned such as a Summer Strawberry Tea.

Jamming Sessions

A monthly group who meet to play guitar, pipes, accordion and other musical instruments in a casual setting.

IT Drop-In Sessions

A weekly drop-in for the community to gain assistance from SCYD’s young volunteers around technology.

Men’s Social Group

A fortnightly relaxed group for men aged 16+ in the local area to socialise.
