Having supported Andy’s Man Club in establishing its second Scottish group in 2018, Dundee United Community Trust can confirm the group has now found a new home at the Boomerang Centre, 10 Kemback Street, Dundee, DD4 6ET, effective from 8th April 2019. Around 12 months ago the Trust, the Club and the Dundee Association for Mental Health came together to pilot a new men’s mental health service in the city following the success of the group established in Perth.
Jamie Kirk, Head of Operations at the Trust said: "I’m really pleased that we were able to support Andy’s Man Club in starting their activity in Dundee. While we will no longer host the sessions at Tannadice, we are still very much behind this cause and will continue to offer our support wherever we can.”
Alex McClintock on behalf of Andy’s Man added: "Andy's Man Club would like to thank Dundee United’s community team for all their help and support over the last 12 months and for helping us establish our second Scottish group at Tannadice. We have grown steadily in Dundee and feel now that the time is right to move the group to a venue that may be more accessible for the men of Dundee. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Club’s Community Trust to help challenge the stigmas of men's mental health."
