In April 2019 we held a residential camp, to support disadvantaged children who are living with a chronic illness: either Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis, which is inhibiting their quality of life. Some parents and siblings also participated. The camp was located at Tulliallan Castle in Fife.
We ran a young carers camp in Scotland for the siblings of children who suffer from a serious illness/disability. The camp, which took place at Strathallan School in Perth from 7th – 13th July, gave young carers respite from their caring role and time to grow in self-confidence and make new friends.
We delivered an all-inclusive annual multi-sport, pan disability residential sports camp held at Badaguish Activity Centre. The camp was for four days long, very positive and intensive for participants and a great chance for carer respite sustained directly through time away at camp.
We hosted a Family Camp in Scotland for families of children with a serious life-limiting illness/disability. Camp was based at Tulliallan Police College, Fife from 26th – 28th April 2019 inclusive, (3 days, 2 nights).
Camp provided respite and fun for carers and children alike.
The project delivered fun, friendship and new opportunities for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) across Tayside.
It provided training opportunities for activity and leisure staff and supported community inclusion in an attempt to reduce existing barriers to inclusion.

Angus Special Playscheme ran 3 different age related schemes for children with additional support needs and one for children with complex needs.
The 15-18 scheme was formed 11 years ago when we changed the age ranges of the groups to best suit the needs and interests of the young people.
Callum’s Caravan provided short breaks in a fully accessible caravan at Haggerstone Castle, a holiday village near Berwick upon Tweed, for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and their families/carers.
Angus Carers organised a programme of events/activities specifically for male carers, designed to give them an opportunity to take a break for themselves, away from their caring role.
The activities included weekly drop in sessions and trips to venues and events throughout Angus and further afield.
We provided fun football activity sessions for children and young people with disabilities within the Scottish East Region Community Football Clubs.
These fun football activities aimed to develop friendships, communication, teamwork and health improvements from physical activity. Their carers also benefit from significant respite hours.
