Support Help and Integration in Perthshire (SHIP)
SHIP runs youth clubs, sports groups, holiday clubs and after school clubs for children with complex additional support needs (5-18 years).
The parent-led charity has been running since 1986 and has extensive experience in supporting children to access activities and their local communities. SHIP’s aim is to ensure that every child has the best possible chance to reach their full potential by running groups that promote life & social skills through fun activities and play.
In August 2020 SHIP was delighted to receive a grant through the Access to Childcare fund. This grant was to allow SHIP to run after school clubs 5 days a week for children across Perthshire. By running the after-school clubs, they would be giving families a chance to work, study and/or spend time with other siblings.
