Crafty Kids Survival Boxes

We have recently launched our new Crafty Kids initiative in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With thousands of kids now stuck at home, we’re helping families with children and young people keep busy through arts and crafts. We aims to deliver over 1000 boxes filled with arts and crafts supplies to homes across Scotland.

Help us support more kids and families during the COVID-19 pandemic by making a donation.

“I diagnosed abdominal pain when the real problem was hunger; I confused social issues with medical problems in other patients’ too. I mislabelled the hopelessness of long-term unemployment as depression and the poverty that causes patients to miss pills or appointments as noncompliance. In one older patient, I mistook the inability to read for dementia. My medical training had not prepared me for this ambush of social circumstance. Real-life obstacles had an enormous impact on my patients’ lives, but because I had neither the skills nor the resources for treating them, I ignored the social context of disease altogether”
