SNAP Short Breaks 2018-19
A story by SNAP (Special Needs Action Project)
We provided short breaks for carers by offering their child or young person (aged 5-20) with substantial special needs 6 hour breaks and weekend breaks of up to 48 hours.
This provided social, recreational and leisure opportunities for the young people whilst giving a valuable break for carers
A story by Caring Operations Joint Action Council (C.O.J.A.C..)
We provided evening group sessions for 29 adults with disabilities and also providing respite for 38 carers.
We picked up each adult from home by mini bus with escort and returned to centre for activities or went out to pub, snooker or parks. Adults were then transported home.
Yolo Sistas Project
A story by Multi-Cultural Family Base
We provided a weekly group for young female, BME carers living within City of Edinburgh. The aim of the project was to access ‘hard-to-reach’ carers from BME communities and give the girls a space to share their experience both as carers and as teenage girls who often feel different from peers.
