Our project was to provide experiences for children with additional support needs on Saturdays. The project was to provide parents and carers with much needed respite.
The project is for young people with disabilities/difficulties with or without a learning disability. Key focus on young people with Autism. Young people aged 8 to 16 years who reside in Dundee, West Lothian or Midlothian.
Our project provides clubs with fun, stimulating, enjoyable and fully inclusive activities for deaf children and young people which improves their confidence, self esteem, mental health and well-being, whilst also providing a much needed break for their carers.
We delivered 9, day-long, online Camp in the Cloud family camp sessions throughout 2022 which served 31 children living with serious illness, and 34 of their family members from Scotland. We brought fun, respite and connection to families at a time of crisis.
Our project was Support For All (2). The project was a continuation of a project we delivered successfully in 2020. Providing activities for children in Midlothian with disabilities. The project also provided Bright Sparks families with a short break and family activities.
Scotland Siblings and Young Carers Camp is for children and young people aged 8-17, who are the siblings of children living with serious illness. Our unique Therapeutic Recreation camp ran virtually over summer & provides campers with long term benefits and short term respite from their caring roles
We delivered KMAdotcom an arts studio in Midlothian which develops the creative opportunity of 12 adult artists with learning disability, giving their parents regular days away from caring.
The Project offered unpaid carers an opportunity to get some time away from their caring role by giving them access to a range of free group and individual activities, which were designed to provide some breathing space and reduce the pressures on their caring role over the festive period.
We delivered Room for Art a series of online visual arts workshops facilitated by an artist on a weekly basis for unpaid carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian with the aim of improving health and wellbeing. Art material packs accompanied the sessions and we explored lots of different art techniques.
