An event designed to strengthen collaboration between groups supporting local children, young people and their families was held at Abertay University.
Dundee Voluntary Action hosted the event at Abertay’s Hannah Maclure Centre, with stakeholders attending from NHS Tayside, Angus Council, Dundee Council, Perth & Kinross Council as well as a range of third sector organisations.
The event focused on how best to plan, design and deliver children’s services in the Tayside area.
The session linked into Abertay’s involvement in the In For Care project – a three-year EU scheme project to develop innovation in service delivery by optimising informal and formal networks.
Topics for the event included looking at the remit of the third sector in Tayside and ways in which the strengths of all partner agencies can be maximised.
Organiser Daniel Gilmour of Abertay University said: “The third sector is playing a crucial role in meeting the needs of local children, young people and their families.
“By strengthening collaboration, and by putting the third sector at the heart of partnerships and planning to design and deliver services, these needs could be better met and more positive outcomes could be achieved for local communities.”
