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 an all-inclusive annual multi-sport, pan disability residential sports camp held at Badaguish Activity Centre.
The camp was very positive and intensive for participants and a great chance for carer respite sustained directly through time away at camp
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.
The All Together project brought children and young people with additional needs together to take part in a range of themed activity days and short breaks to build skills, confidence and friendships and provide a break for parents and carers. The focus was on fun, friendship and learning.
Stanmore Playscheme was delivered in school holidays at Stanmore House School. It offered safe, appropriate play, sporting, expressive arts and outdoor activities for young people with severe additional support needs.
The playscheme is organised by a voluntary committee and run by paid trained staff.
We delivered our Animar project for young people aged 12 to 18 years old with Additional Support Needs, which runs three Saturdays a month.
Animar promotes independence through personal development sessions and community engagement. It runs in Bellshill and Mossend YMCA and in local communities and cities.
We delivered 3 residential adventure trips for young people with additional support needs and took place in the Aviemore, Glenmore area.
Each were for a duration of 3 nights and included the young people, their families and carers. We provided walking, exploring and leadership skills.

We provided leisure activity groups for young people with a range of disabilities aged between 19-30 years. The main aim of the project was to encourage and support the young adults with disabilities engage in activities to develop long-term habits to improve their physical and emotional wellbeing.
