A local MSP has lent her support to a mental health charity’s application for funding amid fears it may have to close down if it is not helped with cash issues.
The Hearing Voices Network (Haven), based in the Hilltown, is short on money and needs urgent support to continue working with local people experiencing psychosis.
Haven’s volunteers provide peer support and coping strategies, and run a regular community cafe.
Dundee City East MSP Shona Robison and Coldside councillor Mark Flynn met with members of the charity to learn more about their problems.
Ms Robison said: “It was a productive meeting, where they shared their growing concerns about potential lack of funding to the service.
“I have agreed to write a letter of support for the organisation’s Big Lottery Fund application and will be contacting Dundee’s Health and Social Care Partnership, who have been providing Haven with emergency funding and support, to facilitate a meeting with the service so they can discuss this matter going forward.”
