A Dundee community project, created by and for young parents, has been shortlisted for a £50,000 National Lottery grant which could transform the lives and skillset of 30 teenage parent families throughout the city.
Led by Front Lounge, the new ‘Bringing Up Baby (BUBS)’ ‘Kindred Clothing’ project will build the skills, confidence and networks of vulnerable, young families by supporting parents under the age of 20 to design and make clothes, learn new skills and make friends while their children play. Ultimately, it is hoped that those attending will leave with an official accreditation from Dundee and Angus College.

A two year extension to the Scottish Government’s hugely successful ‘Help to Buy’ scheme has been announced, with an additional £100M allocated to help around 4,000 households purchase a new build home.
Earlier this week, Housing Minister Kevin Stewart made the announcement, commenting, “Housing is about more than bricks and mortar – we want to provide safe, warm homes, help create a fairer Scotland, and preserve a diverse and more resilient construction sector.”
With funding already in place for 2018/19, the announcement extends the scheme through to the end of March 2021. Crucially, the price cap of £200K will remain.
