HOW WE HELP
Learn to play an instrument
Every music session is different at No Strings Attached (Scotland) because every person is different.
We provide opportunities to learn a woodwind instrument free of charge in one to one sessions with a qualified music teacher, as part of a larger group or – if you would like - to participate in a public performance.
Asthma can be a stressful condition to manage, and stress can even cause asthma attacks.
It can affect people in different ways – some people suffer from asthma symptoms constantly, some only get symptoms every few weeks, while others have their asthma so well controlled that they hardly experience any symptoms at all.
Our asthma nurse, helps our young people to better manage their condition through a better understanding of asthma and its treatments, working alongside existing client medical support, both with our young people and their parents/carers.
Our asthma nurse, along with your GP or Health Practice, can also help to develop a self-management plan to work out how well you are and what to do if your asthma gets worse or better.
To learn more about a self-management plan
please visit Asthma UK or call Asthma UK on 0300 222 5800.
Learning that your child has asthma can knock the wind out of parents. We support the whole family emotionally and practically to deal with the stress and worry that living with asthma can cause.
Our informal peer support group provides an opportunity to meet other parents to simply talk, share advice and relax while watching your child enjoy themselves. Too many people suffer asthma alone, we help break that isolation.
We are keen to promote links with health professionals and are always happy to discuss potential referrals and discuss how we can potentially help the individual. Should you be interested in collaboration please contact us.
For children and young people with asthma, school represents a very important setting for managing asthma which can either be supportive or pose barriers to successful asthma control.
Asthma symptoms that do not warrant urgent medical attention or absence from school can still prevent full participation in the classroom through an inability to get a good night’s sleep, to concentrate during class, or to participate in vigorous play or activities.
We can help to ensure communication and collaboration among teachers, families, and health professionals, including what to do when an attack occurs.
