ENABLE Scotland launches it’s summer appeal

Today, 1st July 2022, we are launching our new summer fundraising appeal, so our team can keep supporting families across Scotland.

ENABLE Scotland’s charitable services team work with over a thousand families every year through our Family Connect network, Welfare Rights service and Self-Directed Support team.

Click here to find out more about the support ENABLE Scotland provided to Yvonne and her son Harris.

Through ENABLE Scotland’s Included in the Main?! Campaign we found that:

  • 60% of children and young people felt lonely at school, with 62.5% saying people do not understand them.
  • 46% didn’t get the same chances to take part in games in the playground as everyone else
  • 23% didn’t get to go on school trips
  • Fewer than a third can name a close friend.

The ENABLE Scotland Summer Appeal will help fund life-changing support services for families in communities across Scotland to:

  • Give them access to basic human rights
  • Support them to plan for their child’s future
  • Link to a national support network for families
  • Have access to our freephone Family Connect helpline

This year your donations have already given so many families the confidence to have a voice, make a change and live the life they choose. With your funding, we plan to help a thousand more families in 2022.
