Visual Media

Leisure and Culture Dundee are working continuously to increase and develop our service provision for the citizens of Dundee. One way in which we maximise our positive impact is by meeting our Charitable Purposes through our Social Responsibility Policy.

We are achieving this by:

  • Being accessible to customers of all ages and abilities
  • Reaching out into the Community
  • Improving and enhancing our customers conditions of life
  • Working with those in need by reason of age, ill health, disability and financial hardship

The following video shows an insight into the vast range of specialised and targeted activities which are provided across Leisure and Culture Dundee within Libraries, Culture and Leisure & Sport:

Move More

The Move More Dundee Programme is a free, 12 session physical activity referral programme. The aim is to help anyone who has in the past, been diagnosed with, or going through cancer to get more physically active than they currently are. We aim to increase their confidence and self efficacy around being active in order to encourage them to make that decision to continue to be physically active long term after the 12 weeks of the programme. We deliver; Walks, Gentle Movement, Gardening and Circuit classes.

Growth Mindset

Growth mindset is an approach which allows young people (and adults alike) to be open to challenges, see mistakes as part of the learning process and understand that talents and abilities are not fixed but can be developed through hard work. By having a growth mindset people are more likely to achieve their full potential.
