The Dolphin Youth & Community Centre is named after the paddle-streamer PS Dolphin 1893-1920 that crossed the Tay River Between Tayport and Broughty Ferry.


The Centre is run by a voluntary management committee who aim to promote the benefit of the Centre to inhabitants of Tayport and the local area by associating the voluntary organisations, local authorities and the community in a common effort to advance education and to provide facilities in the interest of social welfare for recreation and leisure time occupation of the community and to act as an advisory body in the provision of such facilities.
