What is the Scottish Burned Children's Club Founded in 2001, the Scottish Burned Children's Club is a registered charity - SC032376. We provide a network of support for burn survivor children and their families dealing with the life long scars of burn and sclad injuries.
Why have a 'burns' club? When a child is injured the whole family can be affected:
- Physical and psychological trauma - A different body image - A lack of confidence
The Scottish Burned Children's Club helps by providing continued support to the burn survivors and their families and give positive encouragement when faced with new and difficult situations.
The charity strives to help each child realise their goals and dreams and also dedicated to reducing the number of burn and scald injuries by raising awareness of the problems and promoting safe practice. We do this by working closely with safety organisations throughout Scotland and by giving presentations and speeches to various organisations.
How does the charity assist burned children? The charity knows it is important for burn survivors to feel they are not alone in facing day-to-day difficulties and aim to get the children and their families together as much as possible so that they can share and relate their experiences.
It is important to have fun and we combine the two by getting together throughout the year for a series of day trips, special events and visits. Undoubtedly the highlight of our events calendar is the annual summer rehabilitation camp for the 8 to 18 year old children, this allows the children to make friends with other children in a similar situation, meet up and talk and share experiences.
How can you help? Launched in 2001 the SBCC is the only organisation of its kind in Scotland. Soley funded by sponsorship and donations, the charity is run and organised by group of passionate and dedicated volunteers.
The charity is continuously looking for help and support. You can help by donations, sponsorship, fundraisning and volunteering. We are grateful for all contributions big or small and always welcome new additions to our team.
