We provided monthly family support groups for families with children affected by Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in 3 localities across Scotland.
We provided fully accessible play and support for the children whilst parents/carers had a break from their caring role and time to get together with others with shared experiences.
We provided a PAMIS Friendship Club for families who care for a child or young person with profound and multiple learning disabilities. The club was held once a month on a Saturday with weekly sessions over the summer school holidays.
During the sessions we offered multi-sensory storytelling, crafts and music. We also held an afternoon Clay Club during the summer period. The focus of the club was fun and friendship for the whole family.
We organise special breaks for our families. The children and young people we support within these families have cancer or leukaemia, a long term or incurable disease.
CCLASP support over 500 families in Scotland and the provision of special breaks is dependant on funding.
The Family Fun Days project provided opportunities for families with a young child with learning disabilities to have fun together and enjoy the benefits of their local community green space areas.
This year, the Schools Out Project provided rite of passage adventures through weekly activities for 60 young people with learning disabilities in Fife and Cumbernauld enabling their parents/carers to enjoy time away from their caring role.
We provided a weekend for families with deaf children aged 2-4 years with information sessions included education & technology. We also provided a My Future weekend for deaf young people aged 16-20 years to meet, explore options for the future, & find out about support available when moving on in education/employment.
We provided grants directly to carers who are over 20 years of age and resident in Fife.
