Ministerial visit

The Minister for Public Health, Maureen Watt MSP visited our Kith n Kin team at the TCA office in Dundee on 20 January. The purpose the visit was to see first-hand the difference that funding is making to families in the Dundee area.

The Partnership Drugs Initiative (PDI) gives funding to charities working with children and young people who are affected by alcohol and other issues. PDI also helps to shape local and national policy on what works in terms of improving outcomes for Scotland’s most vulnerable children and young people.

Since 2001, PDI has made 272 grants and awarded approximately £22.4 million to 88 organisations across Scotland working directly with families affected by substance issues.

PDI has supported TCA since 2001 delivering projects across Angus, Dundee and Perth & Kinross. The support to the Kith n Kin project includes funding for groups, one to one support and intensive work including family and art therapy.
