The STEP Program was delighted to have the Dundee Community Safety Partnership come to one of the STEP groups and give a talk to the participants about safety within the home. 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.
STEP aims to tackle social isolation amongst older adults aged 65 plus by using an action learning process in a group work setting. Over the summer, it is intended to focus the Programme on people who live within Sheltered Housing Complexes. We also run these groups for adults. Among the modules available are alcohol use, loss and change, drug use, wellbeing, chronic health conditions and sexual health.
If you know anyone that would be suitable for the programme, or have any questions then please get in touch.
