The 3rd STEP Program of 2016

1The 3rd STEP Program of 2016 has come to an end! Working in partnership with Abertay Housing Association, Positive Steps were delighted to deliver Positive Steps’ 9 week lifestyle program (STEP) to the residents at Fintry Mains Sheltered Housing Complex. Using an action learning process, the sessions are fun, interactive, community based and free. The topics covered include Healthy eating, Managing addictions and medication, Financial planning, Good mental health, Sexual health, Coping with change and Effective communication.

We were delighted to work with the Dundee Community Safety Partnership Team who came along for a visit to discuss safety within the home. We also had Robert Bichan from Tai Chi Dundee come in and give a Tai Chi taster session – which everyone enjoyed!

Some feedback received; “Enjoyed each week. Enjoyed making new friends. Interesting and fun, thank you”.

We were sad to say goodbye and look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail

Our Housing Support Team arranged with the Service users to go on the hunt for as many Oor Wullie’s. The service users had a great day out and enjoyed getting their photo taking with the Oor Wullie Statuse’s.

Tai Chi class at STEP

The STEP Program was delighted to have Robert Bichan from Tai Chi Dundee come and give a Tai Chi taster session at one of our STEP groups. Tai Chi is a sequence of dynamic movements that combine soft and hard, with fast and slow actions, in a balanced and natural way that adheres to the philosophical Taoist principles of yin and yang from the “yijing” (Book of Changes). Contained within its framework are spiralling, twisting, and unique silk reeling energy movements, jumps, leaps and explosive energy releases.

During practice the body remains relaxed with the practitioners consciousness, breathing and actions all closely connected. These unique features enhance benefits to health, fitness, and weight-loss and are just a few of the reasons why so many people, regardless of age and level of fitness, regularly practice Tai Chi throughout the world today.

To contact Tai Chi Dundee you can Telephone 07776 043 321, email, visit them at their website or check out their Facebook page at As you can see our participants loved trying out Tai Chi.

Thanks again Robert!

Working in partnership with the Police, the Dundee Community Safety Wardens can deal quickly and efficiently with such issues as antisocial behavior, loud noise or music, drugs activity, alcohol related issues, graffiti and vandalism as well as bogus and cold callers. They do a great job in keeping our communities safe and we were delighted that they took time out from their hard work to tell us more about what they do in the local community.
