S.H.I.P. was established by parents in 1986 and aims to provide support for children and young people with Additional Support Needs in the Perth and Kinross community through their youth clubs and school holiday play schemes. They offer young people opportunities to develop friendships and skills in a safe, fun and friendly environment. They also work closely with key partners within Perth and Kinross to maximise opportunities to improve the quality of life for our young people and their families.
S.H.I.P. services include weekly youth and activity clubs during term time, play schemes and wraparound during school holidays, and under 5's parent and child group. Clubs and play schemes are run by experienced staff and are also supported by teenage volunteers which provides a unique peer group environment.
