Project Title: Angus Special Playscheme
Angus Special Playscheme provides fun and educational activities during the school holidays for children aged 5-18 with additional support needs. They run three schemes flexibly tailored to different age ranges. In addition to this they also run a scheme called 1:2:1 which caters for those with complex needs who require particular one to one care.
Our funding, awarded over three years, goes towards this specialist care which is essential for those attending and their siblings and parents. In 2019, they have visited Blair Drummond Safari Park, Dynamic Earth, Active Kids, Sensations, Innoflate and Ryze. They have also tried archery, fencing and pool canoes for the first time, as well as visits from the Critter Keeper and Therapy Ponies.
Angus Special Playscheme keeps me sane during the school holidays. Not only does it provide my son with activities of his own and a little time off from me, it gives me a chance to spend some quality time with my daughter. The staff are amazing, leaving me confident my son is in safe hands”.
