Maxwelltown Information Centre, Dundee

Our support

We provided support in 2011-2012 to Maxwelltown Information Centre, Dundee (MIC), a community based support centre. MIC provides a wide range of intensive support services to people who have complex needs arising from their life circumstances.

Background to our partner

Maxwelltown Information Centre (MIC) was established in 1995, and is an independent voluntary sector organisation with a professional multi-disciplinary staff team delivering specialist adult support services.

The organisation now provides a wide range of intensive support services to people who have complex needs arising from their life circumstances. From the outset, MIC has had significant success in reaching, supporting and developing positive working relationships with disadvantaged people and Dundee's ethnic minority communities.

At the time of our award in 2011, the centre's services included :

  • weekly surgeries by voluntary sector advice agencies, specialising in areas such as debt management, benefits advice, benefit form filling, employability and civil legal advice and representation

  • the Ethnic Minority Employability Project is focused on supporting jobless ethnic minority adults deal with the transition from unemployment to employment. The Project provides an intensive one-to-one support service for up to six months to people who are experiencing multiple issues which place them furthest away from the job market and who may not be engaging in existing employability service provision
