Dealing with health issues. We can source the relevant person/agency to deal with whatever the query/issue is as soon as possible.
SCYD first opened as a one-stop-shop in the centre of Blairgowrie for young people to access a wide range of information, services and support. SCYD operated from this small shop premises for 10 years but the level of service development was such that bigger premises were needed to fulfill demand.
After more than 3 years of hard work, planning and successfully attaining the required funding work commenced on the refurbishment of The Old Peoples Welfare Club Rooms now known as Wellmeadow House. In April 2015 SCYD finally moved into their new home which provides much more accommodation on 3 floors. Being right at the heart of Blairgowrie town centre we aim to provide a firm foundation for community interest in the town.
