We delivered the PAMIS ‘My Time’ Fun & Friendship Club enabled young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) and their families/carers to access leisure opportunities to help meet some of their health and well-being outcomes, whilst offering a whole family experience.
Our project provided opportunities to bring our deaf young people together through a series of activities and events.
These events were mostly held at Deaf Connections and the Adelphi Centre with other activities held in a variety of other locations. St Roch’s After School Club enjoyed a 3 night-trip to Staffordshire & Alton Towers.
We provided a 2 week Summer Club, including transport and intensive staffing, for children with complex support needs.
There was one tailored week for older and one for younger pupils. An activity and play based club for children unable to access community run schemes due to their high level care needs.
We took young people with disabilities and their families for a mixture of half day sails and full day sails on a modified yacht.
We also provide individualised programme for our Youth Forum leading to RYA qualifications. We work with an Additional Support Needs Schools to support delivery of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition.
RIG Arts provided dedicated comic book style creative workshops for young people on the autistic spectrum.
The project helped to increase wellbeing and nurture peer relationships by bringing people with similar experiences and interests together in a safe environment.
Craigmarloch was a project for 80 children (aged 6-18) with multiple complex needs to enjoy a week’s break at the Hunters Quay Holiday Village to experience fun activities, meet new friends along with their parents staying in quality 3 bed caravan accommodation.
We ran weekly groups in Inverclyde for children and young people (8-16 years) with caring responsibilities.
These young carers benefited from having protected regular time away from their home and caring responsibilities, which helped to build their confidence, develop skills and interests and make new friends.
Our pilot project provided music-based activities for 35 adults with disabilities, in monthly 3-hour sessions in a community venue within Renfrewshire.
This also provided 52 carers from Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and Glasgow with opportunities to take regular breaks, either with or without the person they care for.
Our project provided social & emotional support to deaf children, young people & their families. Along with St Roch’s after school club, we provided a wide variety of fun & stimulating activities for deaf young people to socialise & have fun while their carers enjoyed a break from their caring role.
