Support Our Appeal

Summer of Success


Care experienced young people often face barriers to education and lack of stability does not always allow them to focus on aspirational dreams. Only 4% of care experienced young people go to University straight from school. We at Who Cares? Scotland believe that given the chance and support, young people can achieve.

The Summer of Success is our way of championing care experienced young people by providing opportunities to succeed. Your donation will enable us to provide a range of opportunities for care experienced young people to celebrate their identity, gain qualifications, travel, come together and believe in themselves.


Summer Camp
In partnership with SSC, Who Cares? Scotland is taking over 80 young people to a camp site in Perthshire where they can spend time with their care family and take part in fun and creative activities. Some of our older family members will take on the role of camp leader, take ownership of activities and make sure our younger ones are happy. Your donation could help us provide an unforgettable summer.


Harvard University
Your donation could help to support two care experienced young people to have a life changing opportunity to study at Harvard in the USA for a seven-week long Summer programme where they will gain two 4 credit courses. The Harvard Summer School ends with a formal test. This is not only an opportunity to gain qualifications, but to experience one of the best Universities in the world and travel abroad.
