HISTORY & ETHOS
In 2019, John founded Alexander Community Development (ACD). John quickly brought Kara into the fold and soon enough ‘ACD’ was launched. Growing rapidly to a team of 15, with a mixture of staff and volunteers. ACD is built on a passion to give back to the city of Dundee. Our Transition to Work programmes aim to give people the opportunities to learn trades in a safe live environment, while working with their schools. Our Community Support programme works with food banks and charities to help distribute food and key items to Dundee’s most vulnerable. Finally, Trades for All is our asset-locked construction service, which carries out a variety of building projects for the public, private and 3rd sector.
