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.
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.
We provided opportunities for families caring for a child with additional needs living in Tayside to enjoy activities together with other families or for parents together.
Activities included picnics, farm visits, zoo, dance classes, Christmas shopping trips, pantomimes, meals, party night and Santa.
