Alexander’s Community Development (ACD) is a community organisation serving Dundee aiming to improve the city by better engaging, up-skilling and supporting the people into better quality lives. A key part of the development of ACD is to make the existing space more energy and resource efficient and for a new green building to be established adding to the existing capacity of the site to increase the service provision and revenues of ACD, allowing for sustainability of the services and a legacy to be created in the city through the creation of ACD.
Dundee is the fifth most deprived council area of Scotland (Scottish Multiple Index of Deprivation (SMID) 2020 data). TheSE graphics are a visualisation of the analysis and provide detail on the geographic impact of deprivation in Dundee. ACD understands that there is a need to better involve the community in a variety of ways to help break the cycle of deprivation within the city. ACD aims to improve multiple areas of deprivation, both directly and indirectly, through their service provision in the areas of school outreach and community work.
Alexander Community Development runs a year long Bonus Ball competition. 59 individuals and local business owners have supported the work that Alexander Community Development carry out. We want to thank the businesses for their support throughout 2020/20201.
