Big Hearts – School’s Out!
School’s Out! aims to offer educational activities and lunch to local pupils identified as most isolated. Big Hearts has been working closely with the schools in the Gorgie/Dalry area to maintain a level of support for these young people.
School’s Out! is a new strand to Big Hearts’ existing partnership which started in 2015 and sees DPS Group sponsor free places for vulnerable children to attend Heart of Midlothian’s holiday football courses throughout the year.
To date over 130 young people including children in Kinship Care and Syrian refugees benefited from these sponsored activities, allowing them to make new friends, improve their wellbeing and increase their social connections in the community.
