Our project provided social & emotional support to deaf children, young people & their families. Along with St Roch’s after school club, we provided a wide variety of fun & stimulating activities for deaf young people to socialise & have fun while their carers enjoyed a break from their caring role.
Fun With Friends provided a weekly social group and summer catch-up sessions for young people with disabilities aged 12-19. Activity Breaks provided sessions over the summer break for children with disabilities aged 4-12 years. Young people had fun whilst providing respite for parents/carers.
We provided sailing experience over half day/day/weekends . These were on dinghies/powerboats/modified sailing & motor yacht for young people affected by disability.
These experiences took place on the Clyde or at Castle Semple RYA Sailability Centre of Excellence.
We ran a monthly Saturday club for school children with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities aged 8-19 years and their families.
The clubs were delivered by PAMIS with RNIB at their Springfield Centre, offering a programme of activities.
We provided a 1 week activity break for 11-14 year olds and two residential weekends for 15-18 year old with vision impairment to promote their independence and allow respite for parents/carers. We provided family days across the country offering peer support and a break from the normal routine.
We provided grants directly to unpaid carers who live in Inverclyde.
We provided two social groups for young carers (8-14yrs & 15-18yrs) living in Inverclyde. The groups provided young carer’s with regular respite time away from their caring responsibilities, opportunities to take part in various activities, and to develop peer relationships with other young carer’s within their local community.
We provided a family break to Ardentinny Outdoor Centre in September 2017. Families took part in a programme of fun, challenging activities.
Epilepsy Connections work in Greater Glasgow & Clyde, Forth Valley and Ayrshire & Arran to support children and adults with epilepsy, and their families, to live as well as possible with what can be a lifelong, unpredictable disease. The suite of services we offer has been developed in collaboration with people who have epilepsy and those who support them.
We provided a fully-supported, managed, all-inclusive residential multi-sports and activity camp for 35 youngsters at the newly refurbished accessible Inverclyde Centre in Largs.
The camp was four days long and provides a positive, inclusive and active environment for youngsters aged 10-18 with a physical or sensory impairment.
