Have a Go - The Project

SBH Scotland Support Worker at a Have a Go Play Session with family

As part of our commitment to giving young people with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus the very best start in life we’ve launched ‘Have A Go’.

This project, for zero to five year olds, is about finding ways to boost children's development through movement, communication and play. At the same time we hope to enrich the connections and enjoyment between parent/carers and their child.

Do you need our support? Please get in touch to find out how our Support staff can help you.

Play and the relationships with the people who play with them, are a rich source of security and learning for young children.We look beyond the condition(s) and focus on all the positive aspects of ‘being a kid’ that can make life rich and rewarding.

  • ‘Being a kid’ is about getting to grips with the surrounding world and the people in it.
  • ‘Being a kid’ is also about having fun!

We want to look at ways of communicating and playing with babies, toddlers and young children, to actively pursue progress in their development. Research tells us that being nurtured and encouraged, and having many and varied experiences, is linked to more positive outcomes later in life. What better way to achieve these goals than by having fun with someone who cares?

Our vision:

  • We arrive with knowledge, experience and resources that, added to your own, make a winning formula for your child.
  • We have fun as we play and learn together.
  • We leave you, knowing that your child has progressed and that you have the tools and the confidence to keep it going and face future challenges

This is a project for children aged zero to five years who have spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and we're working with it in the West of Scotland. Watch this space for more updates as we move into different areas later in the project!(although we’ll always be at the end of the phone!)
