Creative and Active Lives

Care experienced young people have told us that they would love more opportunities to be active and have fun, developing their interests and trying out new things in areas such as music, art, sport and crafts.
Research shows that these activities can support a healthy lifestyle, boosting physical and mental wellbeing

We believe that paying attention to creative and active opportunities for care experienced young people will deliver direct benefits for young people who engage in projects we fund, and wider benefits for all care experienced young people in Scotland.
These wider benefits will come as creative and sporting organisations and groups learn more about how to reach care experienced young people, and make small adjustments which support them to take part.
In this way, this funding initiative will link with the overall programme goal of creating transformational and sustainable improvement in the lives of care experienced young people.
