Dundee Carers Centre (DSEN member) was set up in 1989 as the Disabled and Carers Information Centre Association. Now known as Dundee Carers Centre, the organisation’s aim is to improve the lives of carers and disabled people through practical and emotional support, advocacy, training and information about services, rights and benefits.
To celebrate its 25th Anniversary, Dundee Carers Centre commissioned the design and production of a unique tartan based on the colour of the organisation’s logo, along with a new range of products available as their distinctive Carers Clan Tartan line. These include; Poppy brooches, Rose brooches, tartan tammy and a selection of one off items. The products have been popular, most of which were hand produced by carers from their weekly textiles group. All proceeds from sales go towards further development of the tartan and the charitable activities of the Centre. In 2015, they also opened C Gate, a purpose built meeting space which offers room/office space/training facilities for hire. The organisation is always seeking creative and innovative ways to trade. ... See MoreSee Less
