We provide a varied programme of activities and trips during the school holidays for 20 young people aged 15-18 with learning difficulties. The scheme runs for 5 hours per day and also includes a longer day trip at the end of the summer and two day trips at the weekend during term time.
Our Youth Clubs provide regular, weekly social opportunities for young teenagers, with a wide range of disabilities. The clubs offer a safe, fully supported space, where young people can enjoy spending time with their peers, trying new activities, unveiling new hobbies and enhancing existing ones.
We provided a holiday club for disabled children across the Shetland Islands. The club ran for a week at Easter, 4 weeks at Summer and a week in October. We provided fun packed days and a variety of activities to 90 children over the 3 holiday clubs, providing a break to 70 families.
SHIP Holiday Club supports young people (5-18yrs) with additional support needs, sensory & physical disabilities & their families in Perthshire. The clubs promote social inclusion & life skills for the children while giving families get a well-needed break. The clubs run for 7 weeks per year.
We ran four Fun & Friendship youth clubs for disabled young people, based in Edinburgh. The clubs helped increase their social, emotional and life skills and independence, as well as creating friendships and providing respite for families/carers.
SupERkids provided drama, music, dance & friendship groups, where young people with multiple support needs develop self-confidence, express themselves & make friends. The clubs allow young people to have independent fun while their parents and siblings have a break from 24/7 caring responsibilities
Options Adventures gives young people with complex needs and disabilities the opportunity to participate in activities they otherwise would not be able to access and experience. It allows them to interact with their peer group whilst giving parents/carers respite from their caring roles.
The Project provides unique football sessions for Visually Impaired young people that are unable to take part in main stream sessions. It creates a positive social environment for both the young people and carers to have fun and/or take a break from their caring role.
Autism Friendly Football allows young people on the autistic spectrum to take part in weekly football sessions providing the opportunity to have fun, become more physically active, develop life skills and raise confidence. Sessions also allow carers some respite and the opportunity to socialise.
