We provided grants directly to carers who care for a child or adult with learning disabilities.
We organised a 2 night activity break for 13 young people and 13 parent/carers. This trip enabled both young people and parent/carers to try new activities and meet other families
We ran a two week Summer Club, including transport and intensive staffing, for children with complex support needs.
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.
An outreach service, individualised to the young person’s needs which uses mainstream community places. A service which brings together both staff from disability specialised services and mainstream community ones to benefit both.
A project which develops resilience and learning for our young people with a learning disability. A project that leaves memories.
To support the continuation of an annual multi-sport, pan disability residential sports camp held at Largs National Sports Centre in July 2014.
Demand for the camps is growing and we cannot expand places or provide additional equipment. The camps are three days long, very positive and intensive for participants and a great chance for carer respite.
We provided a series of 4 day breaks to young adults with multiple complex needs. As well as spending time on our barges and having trips on the canal to Falkirk, the young people took part in different activities like visiting sports facilities and museums.
This allowed their carers to have time to themselves to recharge their batteries, to devote time to any other siblings and generally relax.
Summer 2014 HIBABS provided 3 trips for 18 children who have severe and complex autism coupled with learning disabilities, for the children & carers.
Supporting people with disabilities & mental health issues to discover their artistic expression & achieve their potential. ‘Create’ supports children & young people aged 5-28 who find it difficult to access mainstream arts provision due to disability.

The Holiday Scheme provides disadvantaged children and their families with a holiday they need by giving a week long holiday at 1 of our 6 static caravans, enabling youth activity breaks and by offering host family holidays across Scotland.
The project offered a school holiday club over the spring and summer school breaks providing activities for young people who, have multiple support needs including severe/complex learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorder and attend East Park School
