Barnardo’s Caern Project
The young people attending Caern have a wide range of needs. Our client group is learning disabilities but within this we have children with high care needs, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Epilepsy and challenging behaviour.
Within the project we have a sensory room, as well as a play room and large circulation lounge, and a smaller TV lounge.
While the children are at Caern the staff arrange indoor activities such as arts and crafts, water play, baking and board games as well as DVDs. We also take them on outings in the community such as shopping centres, play parks, East Links animal farm, Gorgie farm and swimming.
We also offer outreach service, clubs, playschemes and a sitting service.
