Columba 1400 : changing young people’s lives and their communities

  • September 20, 2015 /

entry

Columba 1400 is an award winning social enterprise and charity. Their purpose is to help young people realise that they already have an inner greatness and confidence to transform their own lives and those around them

Young people, their parents or carers, teachers, support workers and other key figures from across the UK come together at their centres in Skye and on the banks of Loch Lomond. Their residential programmes, followed by ongoing support, are designed to give young people the strength and courage to find their own unique voice and purpose – and to use that voice to inspire families and communities on return.
At East End Carers we have been lucky enough to secure 12 places for our Young Carers to participate in this inspirational programme. The young people will participate in the 6 day residential programme in July next year. Work will begin with Columba 1400 staff 3 months before this and there will be 6 months of ongoing support after they complete the residential programme.

Time To Live - Shared Care Scotland

  • July 13, 2015 /

entry

Time to Live is part of the Creative Breaks Programme and provides a sum of money to an organisation like ourselves to make grants available to individual carers directly so that they can choose and pay for a short break that suits them best.

A short break is quality time when carers and those they care for can recharge their batteries and catch their breath. It might be a few hours to pursue a hobby or activity, catch up with friends for lunch, or read a book. Or it might be a few days away, either together or separately. It might be having time apart, or having quality time together away from the daily routine.

At the Carers Centre we have been lucky enough to have Time to Live Funding for the past 4 years and have just had news that we will be lucky enough to have funding for next year. The current years fund ends at the end of October with the new fund opening on 1st November. Last year 50 carers were fortunate enough to access a grant through this fund and get a much needed break from their caring role.

Family Holiday Cooperative

  • June 28, 2015 /

entry

One of Glasgow Easts newest charities launched in January of this year. The charity – run as a cooperative – brings together family support agencies from across the North East of Glasgow to provide one week respite breaks to families living on low income and facing challenging circumstances.

The holidays provided cost no more then £200 (plus £50 deposit) and for some families they are free.

This year we were able to support 15 of our carers to make a referral to this project and access a holiday for them and their family. They all enjoyed a much needed break in one of the 2 caravans the project has at Craig Tara on the Ayrshire coast and had a wonderful time – despite our weather this summer!!
