Dundee United FC are partnering with CrossReach to support the work of the City’s Revive and Restore Café.

Based at Coldside Parish Church, in Dundee, the Revive and Restore Café (R & R for short) is a welcoming and safe place for those at any stage in their recovery from substance use. Led by volunteers, the Café provides community and peer to peer support, alongside a variety of programmes and opportunities to learn new skills. Volunteers have access to gaining qualifications, such as a Food & Hygiene certificate.

Staff of CrossReach Tayside Support Services co-ordinate the café, working with charity Positive Steps to help individuals access support in the city.

Dundee United Community Trust already support a number of projects throughout the city and will share their skills at the cafe by running training and games in the church hall and grounds.

We are delighted that Dundee United are coming on board to work with us and help people have more positive opportunities in their lives. Our team at the R&R cafe, led by co-ordinator Lucie, work hard to make it a welcoming place where people can get a meal, volunteer and have opportunity to learn new skills.

DUFC's Community Trust will enhance what we offer and help raise the profile so that more people can hear about the service and get involved. It's great news.
