The Dornoch Firth Group was established in 2007. It seeks to serve the community of East Sutherland. The DFG became a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) in August 2011. The management group initially made up of members of the Church of Scotland churches now includes the wider community.
To advance citizenship and community development by identifying, creating and developing links to enable the young people and adults of this area to become integrated members of their communities through a programme which provides positive messages of respect, the development of life skills and the enhancement of individual self-esteem in a safe environment. To assist those in need by reason of age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage, through developing strategies to respond to their needs, using local resources and the whole community in its widest context.
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding support by the National Lottery Community Fund. This grant will enable us to continue and expand our range of services within our local community. This support will continue over the next 5 years.
We have also received core funding from the Robertson Trust, The People's Health Trust and the Community Self-Management Development Fund.
