Expert care and rehabilitation

Local, well known businessman, Ian Suttie and his wife, Dorothy, have gifted the charity a sizeable donation, spreading Christmas cheer throughout the centre and ensuring that it will be equipped with a wide range of facilities to help support the delivery of the expert care and rehabilitation to people living with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s and multiple sclerosis as well as those with acquired brain injuries.

In June 2017 Dee View Court launched its capital appeal to raise £3.9 million to extend the centre and provide care and support for twenty more people.  This latest cash injection has propelled the charity towards the finish line, with £250,000 outstanding, which the charity hopes to raise via upcoming challenge event, the Adrenaline Drop and fundraising Rugby dinner, attended by Scottish international rugby legends, past and present.
