Alison is the founder of our group. After her son was given a diagnosis of a ADHD she realised that there was no support service available for parents or carers.

She has worked tirelessly to get the group to where it is today.

Sarah was inspired to work with the Group through being introduced to it by Ray Strachan in her role as a Support Worker with Dundee City Council’s Out of Hours Service. Sarah’s passion to become involved in the Group’s work supporting children, young people, parents and carers affected by ADHD grew from 22 years of experience working, living and caring for children and young people who are unable to reside within their own family homes due to presenting with risk-taking and/or challenging behaviours.
