We provided a 5-day summer camp in Aviemore for 50 young people, aged 8 – 25 years old, living in a family affected by Huntington’s Disease.
The camp included a range of daytime and evening activities as well as practical sessions on coping with being a young carer in a Huntington’s Disease family.
We ran a young carers camp in Scotland for the siblings of children who suffer from a serious illness/disability. The camp, which took place at Strathallan School in Perth from 7th – 13th July, gave young carers respite from their caring role and time to grow in self-confidence and make new friends.
The project was to create another Dual Breaks Club for carers in another Local Authority area, this being Inverclyde as well as the existing club in Renfrewshire. This has allowed carers the opportunity and peace of mind to take a break either with, or without the person they Care For.
We delivered an all-inclusive annual multi-sport, pan disability residential sports camp held at Badaguish Activity Centre. The camp was for four days long, very positive and intensive for participants and a great chance for carer respite sustained directly through time away at camp.
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.
