When the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forced all Achieve More sessions to stop, we understood that this was an opportunity to offer a wider community support and start initiatives to keep the community engaged with physical activities that allow families to improve their situation. Because of that, we started our partnership with Fontana Fit in March 2020. Sean originally comes from Drumchapel where he faced many of the challenges that Achieve More Scotland participants face on a daily basis, which is

Achieve More Scotland is proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week 2021 which takes place from February 1-7, raising awareness of the mental health challenges that many young people face.The initiative was created by Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity that provides counselling and mental health support and training in UK schools. This year’s theme is ‘Express Yourself.’The ‘Express Yourself’ theme is all about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity, whether they be in art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama,

This year has been a tough one all round. For children and young people living under the pandemic has meant a lack of routine, increased social isolation, cyberbullying and higher rates of mental health struggles to name but a few. At the beginning of lockdown we adapted our services in response to those in need of support. In April our food parcel delivery to the community was launched and it’s provided an essential support to families across Glasgow who were going through

Today marks the end of #AlcoholAwarenessWeek where we have been sharing relevant information and facts created by Alcohol Change. One of the most interesting articles looks at the link between alcohol and mental health. So we share here some of their resources and text. Alcohol has been described as ‘the UK’s favourite coping mechanism’, and many of us do drink to try and help manage stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health problems. This is sometimes called ‘self-medicating’ with alcohol. Unfortunately,

This year we decided to open our annual online dance competition to all kids and young people! We have three categories: Tik tok dance, Choreography and Christmas theme. In the Tik Tok dance category, the judges will want to see dances with lots of effort, fun ideas and enthusiasm. You can submit only one video. On the Choreography category our judges are looking for high quality performances and creativity that can blow the audience away. Each video can be up

Mental health problems can affect the way you think, feel and behave. Some mental health problems are described using words that are in everyday use, for example, ‘depression’ and ‘anxiety’. This can make them seem easier to understand, but can also mean people underestimate how serious they can be. A mental health problem feels just as bad, or worse, than any other illness – only you cannot see it. Although mental health problems are very common – affecting one in four people in

As you will be aware, the Prime Minister announced tonight measures which effectively puts our country into a state of lockdown. In order that we adhere with the government measures we sadly require to notify to all of our participants, families and supporters that we have to close all services, including our work in schools and communities until further notice. While it was indicated by the Prime Minister that the restrictions would be in place for 3 weeks initially, it

We are about to start a new decade but we wanted to take a look into our achievements during 2019. This year has marked the 10th anniversary of our charity, a very important milestone and a perfect excuse to celebrate, not just our achievements, but also our young people's. Inflata Nation Soft Play Inflatable Park Glasgow We started the year going to Infla Nation with the winners of the Dance Competition 2018 to enjoy an afternoon jumping around and doing

Community Pharmacy services Did you know that your local pharmacy does more than just making up prescriptions? They also deliver NHS services that can be easier to use than making an appointment to see someone in your surgery – whether you have symptoms you would like checked out or need support with long-term medication. Full details of each service can be found by following the links below to the NHS Inform website, and we have included a short description of the main services that are available from every

My name is James McGuire, I have been involved with Achieve More Scotland for the last 9 years. I was 16 years old when I first got involved playing for Possilpark in the Friday Night Football League. At the time I was also starting my 5th year at Secondary school and wasn’t 10% sure what I wanted to do as a career. This was when I first got introduced to the idea of volunteering, so I started to help organise
