'Dare to Dream'





To all Helm volunteers, employers, funders and supporters


It’s a good time of year to stop and reflect and take the time to say thank you for what you have given all year. You give us your time, your funding, work placements, your patience, your guidance and your support – and so what you all give together is a chance for young people in Dundee to dare to dream. We are looking forward to working with you all in 2017!


Thank You


From the team at Helm

Helm is a charity based in Dundee which provides a creative, supportive learning service for people, in particular young people, who face difficult barriers to developing sustainable careers.

Helm engages with individuals in fresh ways, aiming to find the spark that personally engages them. Our support is often through transitional periods in their lives. We take an holistic approach, not only focussing on career objectives but emphasising the importance of health, wellbeing and personal growth. Helm delivers a range of learning services in partnership with local and national funders and continues to develop a range of pioneering social enterprises that also deliver community services.

We encourage hundreds of people each year to strive for positive results and by doing so we continue to pursue our founding and core commitment - to help more people achieve more - securing for them a better future.
