We currently work with a number of public and private sector partners.
This is where the idea for our group all began back in 2013. Alison our groups founder went to them for advice and support and then realised that a Social Enterprise was a good business model to follow. She then received support from DSEN to register as a charity. They have been a source of great support over the last 6 years.
The Perth and Kinross ADHD Support Group began in 2002. Their mission is to Understand, Support, Develop, and Promote those affected by ADHD and other neuro-developmental disorders. They are a registered charity and offer support and understanding to Parents, Carers, young people, siblings and their families in Perth and Kinross.
Our two organisations first began working together in 2016 when the idea of a the Scottish ADHD Coalition first came about. Since then we have worked on many projects together and 2019/20 will be our biggest project yet under the ADHD Tayside umbrella.

We work with Angus education department to provide training for teachers and support staff.
We are now working with CAMHS to develop a programme to support children, young people and their families while they are awaiting diagnosis and or medication.
The local community officers have been attending our youth groups breaking down barriers and meeting the young people.
