Our Project developed new para-football sessions within grassroots clubs in the east of Scotland to give the opportunity for young people with disabilities to take part in regular physical activity benefiting their health, improve social skill and create friendships.
We worked with a variety of festivals across Scotland to support them to be more inclusive of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD).
As people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and their families can feel left out, on the margins of society. They identified that festivals were a great place to enjoy meaningful time together as a family. This project supported that vision and helped festivals to be more inclusive.
Learning Journeys 2 built on our Learning Journeys Respite programme and continued to provide residential breaks for children/young people with ADHD in Nethybridge, Aviemore and Dalguise and a variety of exciting holiday activities.
We provided really successful respite family break in Liverpool.
We provided a 5-day summer camp in Aviemore for 50 young people, aged 8 – 25 years old, living in a family affected by Huntington’s Disease.
The camp included a range of daytime and evening activities as well as practical sessions on coping with being a young carer in a Huntington’s Disease family.
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.
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.

We hosted a Family Camp for Scotland families which was based at Tulliallan Police College Fife from 18th – 20th May 2018 inclusive, (3 days, 2 nights).
The camp was designed to cater for families of children with a serious, life limiting illness/disability which 16 families (67 individuals) attended.
We provided respite opportunities for the carers of 32 children. We did this by running two activity groups for children affected by multiple complex disabilities living in Dundee.
