STRIDE, Dundee

Intergenerational project STRIDE Dundee helps individuals overcome isolation and loneliness.


STRIDE in Dundee are celebrating receiving a £29,620 grant from People’s Health Trust, using money raised by Health Lottery Scotland.


This new two-year project will connect Africans in Dundee City and surrounding areas. This will aid in overcoming social isolation and loneliness by engaging in an intergenerational project based on both gardening and IT. STRIDE aims to enable generations to work together and exchange skills. An important aspect of the group is allowing younger participants to learn about their heritage.


Chris Lunn, spokesperson for The Health Lottery in Scotland, said: “The funds raised through The Health Lottery in Scotland are changing and improving lives. It was clear that supporting Maryhill Integration Network would have a great benefit to the local community. To date, over £100 million has been raised through The Health Lottery for good causes across Great Britain, of which £9.2 million has been raised for Scotland. We hope to make even more for good causes when Health Lottery Scotland opens in January 2019.”


Health Lottery Scotland is benefitting from Health Lottery tickets sold for all draws being held between 1 January and 31 January 2019. You can buy Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at www.healthlottery.co.uk or from more than 32,000 local retailers nationwide including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
