bOunceT is a registered social enterprise in Scotland that was founded by Callum MacKinnon, Occupational Therapist, in 2017.

The profession of occupational therapy provides practical support to empower people and
overcome barriers preventing them from doing the activities (or occupations) that matter to them.
This support increases people’s independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life. An occupational
therapist will consider all the person’s needs – physical, psychological, social, and environmental.

At bOunceT, we primarily use rebound therapy sessions to engage children and adults with disabilities in inclusive and meaningful play, that benefits their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

We are an activity-based service that is occupation-centered and occupation-focused

Our Vision: “for all individuals to be happy, healthy and be able to participate in whatever activities they want to, need to, or have to do”

Our Mission: “bOunceT improves the quality of life and participation in meaningful occupations for children and adults with disabilities, and their family, in Scotland”

 

Our Values:
“play as a means to achieving other developmental goals.”

“play as an occupation: play as an aim, play as a right, and play for participation”
(Lynch & Moore, 2016)

Feedback!

  • Callum does a great job helping young people with disabilities including my son F. F has developed core strength and balance skills from bOunceT’s rebound therapy intervention and H enjoys the sessions with Callum so much he goes weekly to Stirling… without doubt this is the highlight of his week! Callum worked with Enable whilst at University (which is where F met him) and also at Camp America with disabled kids. He is a very talented young man who does great work and I hope he gets more funding to set up further projects to brighten up the lives of kids like Frankie – well done Callum!

  • For our pupils, bOunceT is focused on the sensory and social outcomes, giving a safe space for them to experience the sensations that come with being on a trampoline and the chance to engage with Callum during the session. The benefits of the sessions extend beyond the trampoline though, with the time spent in these sessions having a calming effect which can help pupils throughout the day!

  • Staff are very well educated and trained to high standards … We recommend this service to families that we support and are happy to be funding some individuals to achieve their desired outcomes.

  • F can now get in and out of his car seat with very little assistance!

  • We have seen big changes in F since he has started bOunceT. He has progressed from only bouncing sitting down to bouncing on his knees and now standing. This has improved the muscle tone in his legs (which are underdeveloped) and his balance.
    As well as the physical benefits, bOunceT has given F a fun hobby. He loves the trampoline and responds well to Callum. We believe that it has built his confidence. He also uses up so much energy on the trampoline that he sleeps well following a session (a massive bonus).
    This service is fantastic and its benefits are endless. Keep up the good work Callum. You are changing young lives!
