Project covers these Local Authorities:

To-date there has been 3 breaks as detailed above (5 days/4 nights). Each of the breaks has been to the Lochgoilhead area for 16 children/young people.

Due to local authority funding cuts Buddies Clubs were authorised by Better Breaks to utilise some of the funding from 1 break to provide days at Buddies Summer Holiday Clubs for children and young people who otherwise would have no access to socialisation opportunities over this period.

This enabled 12 children/young people to participate in the Summer Club programme and provided much needed respite for their parents/carers.
