HopScotch Children’s Charity provides respite breaks for children in Scotland. It is our mission to give children a break from challenging and stressful home environments, and provide a welcoming and nurturing setting for them to create and develop good childhood memories.
Children come from all over Scotland to experience a nurturing and dynamic week of holiday. It remains true that most of those children will not get a holiday at any other time. They arrive from difficult home circumstances or needing respite from a range of responsibilities as young carers. We provide them with a week full of wonderful experiences, ensuring they are fully supported to make the most of their holiday. We believe that good childhood memories last a lifetime, and it is our goal to help every child return home with lots of amazing memories to build upon.
