Our residential camp in Aberfoyle was for young people who are deaf or affected by deafness. They engaged in a series of fun outdoor activities which built independence, confidence, created a peer network to address isolation and encouraged them to develop a positive deaf identity.
We delivered a summer holiday programme for young people with complex support needs. We provided a choice of activities and trips: enabling the young people to have fun and socialise, whilst their carers had a break.
We provided places for 20 children who live in Glasgow to attend our holiday clubs. This provided families who have children with complex needs the opportunity to have some much-needed respite while their children were cared for and had fun, with our experienced and well-trained staff.
SAMs Charity ran a Summer Respite Holiday, which helped children/young people with disabilities/multiple ASN and their Parents/Carers better cope with both existing and new challenges created by the pandemic, reduced their isolation, and improved their wellbeing, resilience, and quality of life.
