Overview of DEAP

DEAP Ltd was formed in 1996 but its origins can be found in the Business Support Group that existed from 1988 - 1995 to support the Whitfield Partnership which had been formed to spearhead the regeneration of the Whitfield area of Dundee. For over a quarter of a decade DEAP has continued to develop, implement and deliver innovative and successful projects that support the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our society. Equality of access for all is important to us and we continually review and evaluate our services to ensure we reach those who are most at need. " Helping Communities Work"
