Tayside (Angus, Dundee, Perth, Kinross)
Welcome to the Tayside Network
Welcome to the Tayside network which covers Angus, Dundee and Perth & Kinross.
During this year, 2021, GWT will be hosting a series of thematic network meetings (usually twice a month) covering a variety of themes. We hope that this will give all members a great opportunity to share practice and ideas with members across Scotland as our geographical boundaries are smaller due to online sessions. All are welcome to come along to any of the thematic meetings. The links will be sent out to you and can also be found under events on the website page and in GWT Thematic Calendar 2021. Follow the link here:
Thematic Calendar March to June 2021
Go to the events page and book your place at one of our themed network meetings.
Local Volunteer Network Co-ordinator for Angus is Shonagh Ferguson.
Local Volunteer Network Co-ordinator for Dundee is Caitlyn Cooper-McCulloch.
Local Network Co-ordinator for Perth & Kinross is Donna McGlashan.
The Tayside Network have a closed online group for GWT members only. This gives a platform to communicate, share intergenerational projects and ideas between the quarterly meetings. The online communication tool is called Band. Band can be downloaded as an app for your phone or can also be accessed via the website, www.band.us. Whilst the setup of Band is in a very similar format to Facebook, it is completely private and groups cannot be searched for. Members can only join Band by receiving a code from the Local Network Coordinators.
