Welcome to Blameless Children’s Charity
Helping children of recovering alcoholics & drug addicts
Who Are We?
Blameless Charity was formed to provide fun times, happy memories and a vision of hope for the future for children and families affected by alcoholism and addiction.
Our offices and premises are resident inside the ground of Hamilton Accies Stadium.
There we have facilities to accommodate our community with recovery days and open days. We have festivals, fun days, play days and cover all festive periods and all school holidays.
Our children’s area consist of a man made beach with 150 tonnes of sand. We have BBQ areas, football facilities, a recording studio, sensory room, Castle Hope, crazy golf and gardens to keep the families and children entertained on special events, birthdays etc.
Also courtesy of Hamilton Accies we have a team of volunteers that meet, greets and co-ordinates a number of Blameless families who watch all the home football matches. Blameless has various away day outings and residential trips to Eden Village, Cumbernauld. Our day trips can range from go-karting, pictures, carnivals, circus, pantomimes and plays all over Scotland.
To ensure Blameless focus remains helping those directly affected by the effects of drug and alcohol abuse we have created guidelines for those included. There are three affected parties Blameless will include; these are outlined below:
Family or friend
“Addiction is a hugely important matter – one that affects millions of families throughout Scotland in one way or another – and we feel that by delivering such talks to people that we can quite literally change the lives of so many people.”
Colin McGowan – Chief Executive, Hamilton Academical
