Thanks to funding from the Scottish Government's Get Into Summer campaign and in association with Scottish Forestry we're supporting young people with care experience across Scotland get into summer and focus on well being with our Summer Sessions. Read on to find out how to find out more and how to take part.

Here's what we are aiming to achieve with the Summers sessions:

  • Support the improved mental health and wellbeing of care leavers and their workers.
  • Provide targeted opportunities for care leavers and those who support them to reconnect with each other and us after 15 months of participating online.
  • Provide opportunities to be active in the woodlands and forests participating in activities relevant to wild spaces.
  • Enable care leavers to continue using their local wild spaces beyond the programme.

Our goal is to have these events across Scotland and I am pleased to share with you some of the dates for the Glasgow, Ayrshire, Fife, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire areas. These are as follows:

August 11th, 18th and 25th:  Glasgow Ruchill Park, Glasgow

August 21st: Callander Park, Falkirk.

August 26th: Clackmannanshire region (exact location TBC)

August 27th: Tentsmuir Forest, Fife

August 31st   and September 14th : Linn Park, Glasgow.

September 4th  & 7th and 9th : Ayrshire Region (exact location TBC)

September 21st: Pollok Park, Glasgow

September 23rd: Dundee region (exact location TBC)

All the sessions will be led by a fully qualified outdoor instructor. The sessions aim to allow care experienced young people and their staff/carers the opportunity to take part in a range of activities from campfire building & outdoor cooking, shelter building, outdoor arts and crafts and conservation activities such as pruning and tool work.

Please note that Staf are unable to arrange transport to and from the locations, as such we are encouraging staff/carers to attend with their young people, however travel can be reimbursed by us. Lunch will also be provided on the day.

Complimentary places are available to Staf membership holders. For more information please email Project Development Worker Tommy Dey at [email protected]
