NSA Projects

Our Projects

In January 2011 to June 2011 our charity ran a successful pilot project based at Pirie Park School, Govan in the evening funded by the Endrick Trust and Long Term Conditions Alliance Scotland (LTCAS) now known as Social Care Alliance Scotland.
In addition, the charity received additional Development Funding from the LTCAS and Robertson Trust from October 2011 to September 2012 to develop the project in Govan.
The project was successfully implemented and developed to reach a larger number of young people from a number of schools in Govan from September 2012 – April 2012 and subsequently at Govan Campus during evenings from April 2012 – September 2012.
Evaluation of these projects demonstrated that the charity have been able to successfully achieve their objectives.  From this success emerged a new partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde CHP South Sector to deliver a project during the daytime for two primary schools. The Robertson Trust funded money towards music tuition.  In response to conclusions drawn from the evaluation of the previous project at Govan Campus, the project was held during the day so as to reach a greater number of young people.

Renfrewshire Young Carers Project

 The charity successfully received funding from Shared Care Scotland and the ALLIANCE to run a project for young carers who have asthma.  These are young carers who are looking after a cared for adult.

This project has allowed the young carers to take time out of their caring role have fun and learn about how to manage their asthma as well as learning how to play a wind instrument.

There is no charge for the young people taking part in this project and instruments are loaned to them for free.

Music Tuition

The charity have two very specialised people who provide music tuition and both work in a freelance capacity.

Jenny teaches saxophone and clarinet……..

Emma teaches flute…..

Need to get some blub about the teachers

Asthma Management

 We have an asthma nurse who works alongside our music teachers and the nurse teaches our young people on inhaler technique and about the different types of inhalers and how they can manage their asthma.  This can be delivered through games and quizzes dependent on the age of the young person.
