Dundee Disabled Children’s Service Goes Full-Time Following Funding Boost

A Dundee drop-in centre, providing play services for disabled children, young people and their families, is stepping up a gear after receiving £125K funding from the Scottish Government.

The Yard, which opened in 2015, currently operates from temporary, shared premises at Rainbow House, Drumlanrig Place, offering creative and adventurous play for children and their siblings between 11am and 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

The grant, from the Aspiring Communities Fund, which is supported by the European Social Fund (ESF), will allow The Yard to increase from a two to five day service as of this Autumn.
