What are you doing this Summer?

Summer holidays are just around the corner, and we all need a break – time to get away, laugh, and build positive lifelong memories with the people we love.

Sadly, not all families in Scotland get this chance. Some of the children we support are facing hardships that can be barriers to a free and happy childhood.

I want to get some holidays and some fun time.

This place is amazing. It actually got me to try more food and the ping pong room is just so good. It feels so good!

So much peace. Yesterday, after dinner, my stomach hurt so badly (because of all the good food).

Just getting away from the hustle and bustle of scheme life is the best thing I think.

It just kind of helped because it got me away from home and off my phone.

(You should) stay for 5 years. It’s so good here. The food is amazing!
