Based in Glasgow, the LUNA Project is a charity that supports and raises awareness of young people with long-term health conditions and disabilities.
‘LUNA’ stands for ‘Learning to Understand Needs and Abilities.’ Founded in 2019 by young people for young people, The LUNA Project aims to facilitate support for those living with long term illnesses and disabilities. The charity creates and shares resources such as blogs and videos, runs workshops and an Ambassadors Scheme helping young people advocate for those with long-term illnesses and disabilities.
How You Can Help
There are many ways to give your time to The LUNA Project, such as through contributing blogs, lived experiences of long-term health conditions or disabilities, and fundraising or events. See some opportunities here, and also details of how you can submit your own ideas for projects.
If you are in the Scottish Secondary school years of S5 or S6, you could become an Ambassador for the LUNA Project, and help to advocate for young people with disabilities and chronic illnesses.
Please note: Some of the above opportunities are restricted to young people only (under 18s). While in-person opportunities are based in Glasgow, The LUNA Project welcomes fundraising and virtual volunteering (for things like resource creation and blog posts) from young people across the UK.
Fundraise for the LUNA project, either by joining in on one of their challenges or through your own campaign.
