Dundee City Council pledges to:

Challenge ourselves to increase the positive impact we make on our local community and make better use of our assets – our buildings/grounds and our people.

In the next six months we will do at least three things that we don’t do at the moment to improve our social impact.

1st Commitment

Promote the Breakthrough programme to our employees and encourage them to become mentors. This programme aims to transform the lives and boost the life chances of young people who are care experienced, those on the periphery of the care system, young carers, those living with families with addictions and those who are vulnerable.
