Team United provided sports summer camps for children and young people with disabilities in 3 locations during the school holidays in Spring 2020 and Summer 2020.
The activities ran in partnership with local community clubs and offered the same opportunities to all.
The Rangers Charity Foundation provided unique free football sessions for Visually Impaired young people. We created a positive social environment for both the young people and carers to have fun and/or take a break from their caring role.
We delivered a day-long online Camp in the Cloud family camp on Saturday 30th August which served 11 children living with serious illness, and 27 of their family members from Scotland. We brought fun, respite and connection to families at a time of crisis.
We ran a monthly social event, each with a different themed activity. This was open to the carers and families of our TEENS+ students, as well as the students themselves. We offered flexible options for attendance/participation.
Creative Companions provided short breaks opportunities to Gypsy/Traveller carers in Edinburgh/Lothians, Perth & Kinross and Argyll. Plans for family days & residentials were severely impacted by COVID-19 & replaced by online activities, afternoon teas, guided pamper sessions and Festive packs.
Siblings & Young Carers Camp 2020 was a virtual camp experience for 48 young carers which took place Tuesday 14th – Thursday 16th July 2020. This project brought the magic, connectivity and respite of camp to young carers in Scotland in the safety of their homes during lockdown.
The Rangers Charity Foundation provided the opportunity for young people with a Visual Impairment to take part in free football sessions in a fun and friendly environment whilst allowing their carers to enjoy a break from their normal routine.
We delivered The Yards Youth Clubs which are three youth clubs for disabled teenagers between 14-18 yrs.
The clubs meet on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings for 2.5 hours and work with a maximum of 16 teens to help friendships form, enable positive wellbeing and give the opportunity of independence.
Disabled children and young people use their imagination to create their own musical theatre, developing skills, building confidence, making friends and having fun through the mediums of music, dance and drama.
