We delivered Hand in Hand an Inclusion Project for young people with Learning Disabilities living within Girvan and the surrounding villages. We provide social and developmental activities and opportunities in a variety of settings.
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.
Ayrshire Cancer Support delivered holistic carer support groups for anyone living in Ayrshire over the age of 16 years of age who is caring for someone who has been affected by a cancer diagnosis.
We provided a 5-day summer camp for 50 young people from across Scotland, aged between 8 – 25 years old, living in a family impacted by Huntington’s Disease.
The camp gave young people the chance to grow in confidence and develop personally while getting support on issues relating to Huntington’s Disease and also being a young carer.
Hand in Hand provided a peer buddy initiative providing social & recreational opportunities for 43 young people with learning disabilities & 8 peer buddies.
We did this by running a fun and diverse developmental programme of activities. The project also offered respite to the families and carers of the young people.
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.
Our project enabled young people living with Cystic Fibrosis to have one to one befriending support while their carer used the time to explore other activities whilst having a break from their carer role.
Our project promoted integration, social connectedness and activity opportunities that supported the development of 50 young people to become integrated with mainstream sport and social activities by bringing together teams that Trust Rugby International have to date in the West and East of Scotland.
We provided grants directly to carers living in South Ayrshire.
We provided a fully-supported, managed, all-inclusive residential multi-sports and activity camp for 35 youngsters at the newly refurbished accessible Inverclyde Centre in Largs.
