How you can help us

There are lots of ways that you can help to support TCA and the work that we do.

Without our amazing supporters we would not be able to provide our vital services for the individuals, families and communities of Tayside. Whether you enjoy running a marathon or spending time baking cakes, organising a fundraising event or taking part in a challenge event is great fun and could generate a brilliant donation for us!

If you would like to discuss any donations or fundraising activities please contact us on 01382 456012 or email

Counselling and Creative Therapies


There are opportunities for volunteering within Counselling and Creative Therapies that include:


• Supporting the facilitator in the Women Only Zone (WoZ) group
• Volunteer Counsellor (on completion of the 4 COSCA Modules and the SACC module which can be completed through TCA)
• SMART facilitator (on completion of the SMART online training)

Safe Zone Street Outreach


Volunteers will work alongside staff from statutory services and other third sector agencies, providing help and support to vulnerable service users, on a range of issues such as substance use, homelessness, benefits, food poverty and mental health. Safe Zone Street Outreach is operational in Dundee on Fridays in Stobswell and Saturdays in Lochee, 6.00pm – 8.30pm. Training and support provided.

Plusone/Link Up Mentoring/Mentoring groups


This an early intervention programme that uses a voluntary mentoring approach to engage with young people aged 8 to 19 years who are affected in some way by drugs/alcohol or anti-social/offending behaviour. Our Mentoring services match young people with trained volunteers to build positive, trusting, supportive and secure relationships. These relationships are expected to last for the long term, with frequent and regular meetings.

Youth groups


TCA delivers a number youth groups across Angus, Dundee and Perth & Kinross, which offer volunteer opportunities as a group co-facilitator. In this role you would help plan delivery of the sessions, support facilitation at the groups and help engage the children/young people in the activities.

Volunteer to support the Administration Team


There are various opportunities to volunteer within the Administration Team of TCA. The need for additional admin support can vary at different times of year to reflect the projects/services being delivered at any one time but training and support would be provided.

Board of Trustees


Board members have a responsibility for governance of the charity and therefore meet approximately every 3 months to discuss activities undertaken by the charity. As a trustee you would contribute actively in giving strategic direction, setting policy, defining goals, setting targets and evaluating performance. In addition, you would safeguard the reputation of the organisation, may be asked to represent TCA at functions and meetings, and play a role in the sub-committees of the board.
