We are a new Edinburgh-based charity, launched in 2017, and we held our first summer holiday in 2018 at Fettes College

It was one of the best quality time we all had in ages without having to worry about Haamid’s care

Our 2018 achievements

In July 2018, we held our first ever SuperTroop holiday. Whether you welcomed us to our venue, organised an activity or performed us, helped to recruit families, fund-raised, or donated to our cause, we are indebted to your support in making our first holiday a major success!

You can read reports on the 2018 holiday, including family and volunteer feedback, on this page.

WHAT OUR FAMILIES SAID ABOUT OUR FIRST HOLIDAY

Jenny seemed to make some very special friends. She obviously loved being with people with energy and a sense of fun who were patient and caring too. The selection and training must have been top-class to have created such a perfect team.
I was very nervous about leaving my son with people I hardly knew and the fact that the helpers were so young did concern me but I’m delighted to say I was completely wrong!

Our Mission

Our 2018 holiday was a huge success and we’re incredibly proud of what we achieved. Soon, we want to grow our organisation to provide more marvellous holidays to more fantastic young people. The first step is to establish our model, embedding best practice and nurturing expertise within the team. We will use what we’ve done at Fettes to build a replicable system for recruiting and training volunteers, selecting and preparing holiday-makers, and establishing new holidays at new host sites.

Thanks to the combined expertise of our volunteer managers, we have a unique opportunity to make a new and valuable contribution to the local Edinburgh & Lothians community in providing specialist holidays for young people who don’t often get a chance to go away without their families”
