The Dalgarno Trust Community Connect are a vibrant team of trained volunteers.  Our volunteers live locally and are a valuable resource within their local community both as a source of information and as a vital link between local people and the activities provided in the centre and the wider community.

Community Connect volunteers provide a range of activities including family events and workshops and link with other projects such as Healthworks to ensure residents get the best advice and information to keep them healthy and happy and to break down barriers that prevent inclusion.

Our Community Connect volunteers meet for a chat over coffee the first and third Thursday morning of the month at 11am.  This is when we can catch up with each other and plan more activities.

Previous events:

  • Sugar Awareness
  • Pancake Day
  • Kids’ Fun Day

Maternity Champions is a new initiative for the Dalgarno Trust.  We currently have four Maternity Champions undertaking the Birth and Beyond training.

Once trained our Maternity Champions will provide support to new parents from pregnancy and into the first year of a child’s life.  They will be a listening ear to new parents and offer signposting to local services as well as developing activities for new parents.

We are planning to work in partnership with Mend Mums to provide activities for new mums starting in April keep an eye out for details.
