Family Days Out – The Kelpies and Falkirk Wheel

Family Days Out – The Kelpies and Falkirk Wheel

SLCO hosted a family day at The Kelpies, with a visit to the Falkirk Wheel. 15 families from around the local areas enjoyed  a great day out, meeting each other and children making new friends.

Blue skies and cosy coats kept children’s spirits up as they played together for the whole day,whilst parents had a chance to meet and chat and build some local connections.

Children were able to play games, draw, share some food and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

Our efforts to create opportunities for families to meet and share experiences are events we like to include in our support programme, to help build local support networks and give children the chance to meet other children that they can identify with as being like them.

We also had an opportunity to meet the team at Sygenta, xxxxx, which had raised funds for us in the workplace, and a cheque for £900 was presented during a photo opportunity,shared with the local press.

Big thanks go to Heloise Bryce, the Plant Manager, who had nominated SLCo as a charity. She has first hand experience of how speech and language impairments affect children, as a mother of a child with communication support needs.
