Barnardo’s Apna offers a wide range of support to Black Minority Ethnic (BME) families who have a child or young person with a learning or physical disability living in any part of Glasgow. We do this by improving the access local BME community currently have to existing services in the city. This is instrumental in changing existing provision and creating new ones which are responsive to cultural needs. Apna is the only service of its kind in the whole of Scotland, and it offers a lifeline to the local BME community. The project tackles all the disadvantages faced by families who have a child or young person with a disability and enables local BME children to play a fuller part in the local community and in leisure activities.

To help achieve this we have a skilled team of workers who engage with young people as individuals that have a valid contribution to make to the future betterment of the community they live in and not as an anti-social problem that has to be controlled or criminalised.
