Coronavirus (COVID-19) update from Highland Champs

As of 17 March 2020, we have had to sadly cancel all Highland Champs Groups - which is likely to be for at least a few weeks.

This mean the Clachnaharry building won’t be open - but our social media absolutely is and the well-being of our Care-Experienced Young People is absolute priority right now.

We recommend that CEYP

  • ‘Like’ our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter & Instagram for updates - and please tell your CEYP friends to do the same.
  • PM the Facebook page if you would like to be added to the Secret Facebook Group, just for CEYP
  • Reach Laura via text, and Hollie via social media
  • Have a look at what coronavirus is and how it might affect you by Young Scot! We don’t feel scared, and you shouldn’t either.
  • Practice lots of self care and look after yourself - that includes doing lots of things you enjoy, even if you cannot leave the house. It’s important that you remain positive, especially when the news can make it all feel a bit scary. Check out this link for staying positive in a crisis.
  • Let us know how we can help, and how we can keep the Highland Champs spirit alive! Should we do Facebook Live sessions? Start a Champs WhatsApp group? Or snapchat? Send us your suggestions and don’t be afraid to ask for help either.

We are working hard behind the scenes to keep Highand Champ’s amazing work ongoing.

As soon as we know an update about our groups, we will let you know too.
