The heart of CHAS

The children who need our care and support are at the heart of everything we do. By looking at their individual needs and preferences, we aim to enhance their life through fun, stimulation and enjoyment.

Experiences that leave treasured memories

We’re dedicated to giving every child the chance to socialise, connect and enjoy shared experiences - we work closely with you and your child to develop plans that capture your whole family's wishes, hopes and dreams, and do what we can to help you achieve them.

Even when dealing with a very serious illness, there can still be opportunities to create treasured memories. 

Here are some of the ways that we make sure this happens:

  • Organising group or family activities
  • Attending concerts or performances in-house and in the community
  • Participation in themed breaks, where there are team challenges or themed activities

If you care for a child with a life-shortening condition who would benefit from our services, talk to us.

We would be happy to talk through all available options and opportunities and explain further how CHAS can help families across Scotland. 

Moving on from CHAS as an adult

Chas offers a transition service for young people, starting from the age of 18. The transition service covers the whole of Scotland, with transition workers based in both Robin House and Rachel House.

A young person will be offered a dedicated transition worker. The transition worker will help to identify goals that will assist the young person to be as independent and in control as possible, whilst still remaining safe and well.

The goals the children develop could be around:

  • Further education
  • Getting into work or volunteering
  • Doing more with your social life
  • Taking part in more leisure or sport
  • Breaks away from home

The CHAS transition worker will liaise with other care providers and support organisations, including local authorities to do all they can to help our children achieve their goals as adults.

If you're interested in hearing more about our transition work or feel that you have a skill or service that could assist please get in touch - we'd love to chat.

If you want to talk to someone about your own situation or find out more about our services, please get in touch:
