What matters to you

Giving a voice to the community

What Matters to You (WM2U) is an initiative focused on community-based systems change, collaborating with families in Dundee, Clackmannanshire, and East Ayrshire. 

System change involves altering the conditions that perpetuate problems, with a core focus on amplifying the voices of those with lived experiences. Our strategy begins by getting to know families in local communities to explore ways to address what truly matters to them. 

By focusing on relationships in communities, we aim to support a culture of trust and families truly feeling supported at the right time.

Your experience of WM2U

Whenever anybody asks me what my personal journey was like with it, I really cannae describe it.    …I know I had one, but it’s hard to describe….

With my daughter we have come on so much. The difference is our relationship is amazing. In the beginning it was the school I had approached about (her). I thought something was happening and I needed help. The school made me feel like it was my fault. When I started the Columba group there was no judgement there, just understanding and kindness. They have just been there all the time when I needed anybody, and I think it is great.
