What we’ve done so far

Between 2005-2010 GACAC raised more than £200,000 for young people’s mental health facilities. With the money we:

  • Built a superb new playground at The Terraces, Mount Gould Hospital, CAMHS. It’s a bright, sensory environment, designed to engage and stimulate the children who go there
  • Bought a minibus – which helps children enjoy day trips, go to therapy sessions more easily and generally get out and about in the community, developing life and social skills
  • Funded leading edge play and therapy equipment that makes a dramatic difference to children with special needs at CAMHS
  • Added a new extension at the Child Development Centre for parents and consultation rooms
  • Created a peaceful garden with seating for young people
  • Transformed the art therapy room into a new multipurpose workspace

What we’re doing now

So far, we made a difference though funding large projects connected to the CAMHS and Child Development Centres at Scott Hospital. Now, we’re reaching out into the community and offering grants to families and small organisations who meet our criteria. We believe targeted funds can have a hugely beneficial effect on children’s lives. If your child is affected by any of the issues highlighted on this website, we can help you through our grants.
