Craigowl Communities becomes Gowrie Care
Craigowl Communities has transferred its activities to its sister company, Gowrie Care, as of Saturday 1 April.
The Craigowl projects will continue to be delivered from The Learning Place in the Hilltown, but under the Gowrie Care name.
Meanwhile, Craigowl’s Making Money Work team is moving to Dundee City Council, from where they will continue to deliver the service.
Lynn Cunningham, Craigowl’s managing director, explained: “Craigowl joined the Hillcrest Group six years ago, and this is concluding that merger. With an ever shrinking funding pot, Craigowl like many small charities has to deliver value for money, and by aligning our services with Gowrie Care the important work we have been doing will continue.”
For twelve years, Craigowl has delivered services to support people to take steps towards finding and keeping a job, to improve their confidence and self-esteem, to manage debts, benefits and budgeting and to provide opportunities to obtain practical skills and qualifications.
Ms Cunningham said: “I want to say a big thank you to all the staff that have contributed to Craigowl’s success over the years and wish the teams all the best for the future.”
