The Scottish Government has provided funding to local authorities and national partners to enable them to enhance their Summer Offer to Children and Young People over the holiday period, to help support children, young people, parents, families and carers to reconnect and boost their wellbeing after such a tough year.
As part of the Get Into Summer campaign, Who Cares? Scotland are offering a programme of activity across the country from July to September to Care Experienced young people aged 16-26. This will include local days out, picnics, BBQs, sports groups, craft groups, music clubs, football tournaments, mindfulness sessions, cookery lessons and so much more.
Please note places for these activities will be severely limited due to Covid restrictions. Where there is demand, we will look to offer alternate dates for similar activity. There will also be opportunity for smaller group activity or one-to-one time with individual workers.
