It can feel daunting to look for support from a place you have never been.
You might wonder what you will say or how it will feel to talk to someone you don’t know.
We understand this.
The team at Alternatives Dundee are not here because we have all the answers or can fix your situation, we are here because we want to be alongside you at a difficult time.
A team member will get back to you as soon as possible. We will ask you a few questions about your situation and when are you available, this will help us find the team member who is best for you. We will do our best to find a time and day that suits you, or if you prefer, we can offer you support over the phone or through email.
Our service is confidential, this means that the things we talk about and your personal details are kept locked securely and we won’t share your story with anyone else. The only time we break confidentiality would be if we are concerned for your safety or the safety of another person. We would always talk with you about this first.
Our room is the Dundee Voluntary Action building (10, Constitution Road). This building hosts a large number of charities and many people come and go from the building each day, both service users and staff. This means that no one will know why you are there which feels safe and anonymous. When you come to reception just ask for Alternatives and we will come and meet you.
Appointments last for one hour.
Let your team member know if you are concerned to be out sooner because you have only 60 minutes parking.
“I’ve had support that’s helped me, received understanding and assurances…amazing, great service”
