What You Can Do

You don't have to part with your cash to help us here at East Lothian Special Needs Playschemes. There are so many other ways you can get involved. Some of them are quick and easy and some involve a bit more time and commitment so there is something for everyone! Here are some ideas of what you can do...

Volunteering is a rewarding experience for anyone at any age. We could not run our playschemes or our youth club without our dedicated helpers. Why not visit our volunteering page and find out more?

There are so many fun and exciting ways to raise money to help us. Use your imagination or find inspiration on our Fundraising Ideas page.

Bring us up in conversation at the bus stop, in the park, at the checkout. Tweet about us, mention us on Facebook. Better still, LIKE our Facebook page and ask your friends to like us too. Tell everyone you meet about us like the guy in the paper shop, the woman in the library, the dog. The more people who are aware of us and what we do, the more we will be able to do for East Lothian children and young people with disabilities.

And one last thing....Thank You!

ELSNP is bound by the regulations of OSCR and in order to receive funding and remain a registered charity we must be a parent led organisation. Our Management Committee of parents is central to the running of Playschemes. Without parents volunteering a very small amount of their time, Playschemes could not operate. It is essential that new members are recruited regularly to ensure the continuation of Playschemes and help share the load.


There are currently only ten parent Committee Members. Sixty-eight families currently benefit from the services of Playschemes.If you are a parent or carer of a child who comes to Playscheme or Star Youth Club, then we urgently need you! All is required is two hours of your time once a month, and only for ten months of the year and it's fine to miss two or three meetings! It is very little in return for five weeks of respite.
