Depression Alliance Scotland is working towards a future where depression is recognised, understood and acknowledged to be a common and treatable medical condition, just like any other. Barcapel has funded this charity in the past agreeing with the excellent work of DAS in raising awareness of an illness which often goes undiagnosed, and on this occasion the Trustees approved a further grant of £70,000.00 in June 2008.
What Barcapel Supports
Our three priority areas of interest for funding are health, heritage and youth.
- HEALTH - all areas of medicine and healing are supported by the foundation, with a particular interest in complementary and alternative therapies.
- HERITAGE - we are committed to preserving and protecting our artistic and cultural heritage, especially with reference to the built environment.
- YOUTH - the foundation supports all areas of development for young people especially those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
