Outreach

Currently we are supporting 3 charities - Crocus, Chernobyl Children's Project and Blythswood Care Food Bank and Shoe Box Appeal.
We continue our links with Combat Stress.

Crocus Group - a small Inverness based charity which was formed to provide emotional support through peer group sessions for bereaved children.  Crocus supports and empowers young people to manage their own grief rather than using a counselling approach.  Further information can be found at https://crocusgroup.org.uk/about-us/





Chernobyl Children's Project UK supports children, families and young people in Belarus, the country worst affected by the 1986 Nuclear Disaster.  Every summer they provide month long recuperative holidays in the UK for children from Belarus. For children who cannot come to the UK, they send volunteers out to support a holiday at a holiday camp in a clean part of Belarus in July and August.  They  purchase urgently needed medicines for the Children’s Cancer Hospital in Minsk and support the Children’s Hospice Movement.  Further information can be found at http://www.chernobyl-children.org.uk
