Befriend a Child 

Supports local school aged children with 1:1 befriending and groups sessions. Children who have been growing up in complicated life circumstances, suffering with low confidence, social isolation, mental health or substance misuse are supported with a 1:1 befriending programme. Funds will be used for vital befriending training for the volunteers and provide children with fun and regular social activities in our local community. 

Camphill School 

In Aberdeen, plan to create the first fully inclusive Outdoor Sensory Adventure and Learning Playground which will be free at the point of access and open all year round, via a booking system, for any young person across the region with a sensory disorder such as autism and learning disabilities who would benefit from accessing relaxed play sessions.
