We are a small, registered Charity, SCO34175. Our Objectives are to provide an inclusive and supportive environment for families including those youngsters who have a disability, special need or culture needs. We provide a meeting place, usually once a month, so people can get together for the purpose of mutual support and encouragement in their fostering tasks and to organising activities and social events. We offer all youngsters new opportunities and good experience through our activities and day trips. We do this through fundraising and the children help to do this. We try to give the most Vulnerable Children in our area New, Good Experiences. The children we support have experienced many different disadvantages, Neglect which has resulted in the children not growing or reaching their milestones as their peers have. Lack of opportunities including hobbies and school trips due to birth parents poverty resulting in poor self-esteem and feelings of exclusion, Lack of social skills resulting in poor ability to mix with social groups, mix in general public and have appropriate behaviours. Lack of encouragement and praise which would limit their ability to try new activities.

Through trying new experiences and activities the children will learn new physical and social skills. They will gain the development of motor skills and stimulation of mental ability. This is to be done in a controlled environment that they feel safe in, enhancing their self-esteem and their will to go on and try more new experiences. In addition to this it will stimulate their imagination and creative ability as they will experience, hear, see and feel things they haven’t before. The children bond with their carers during our activities, also allowing them to socialise with other children in the same situation.

INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING TO HELP SOMEBODY IMPROVE THEIR ENGLISH SKILLS LOCALLY?

Angus Council Place team have opportunities for volunteers of all ages and walks of life to help students attending  their English evening classes to improve their English skills.

The ESOL Buddy Project is designed to give volunteers from the local community the opportunity to meet a student from another country and learn more about their life and culture. The student gains the opportunity to improve their spoken English skills and better integrate in the community, progress at work or to further education.

Typically the volunteer and the student meet once a week for about two hours in a public place – a café or library – at a time that suits them both for a chat about their lives and families – a ‘blether’ as we would say! There is no need to know another language or be a grammar expert. The project is run to improve informal English and strengthen contacts in the community.

The project has been running for over three years and many volunteers have enjoyed the experience and made good friends. Students have made great progress by engaging with community groups and leisure activities that they did not have the confidence to embark on, as well as making progress at work or study.

We have opportunities in Forfar, Arbroath, Brechin and Montrose.

Opportunities also exist to volunteer in the classroom as a teaching assistant. This has helped many volunteers gain the experience they need to follow on from a TEFL qualification or similar.

If you are interested or would like to find out more about this project please get in touch with Neil Paterson Communities Officer at:
