Parents and carers are very important to SHIP and SPLASH and we all work closely together to maximise the opportunities to support our children and young people, as well as providing essential respite for the people who do the real hard work.

Some of our parents and carers are actively involved in helping to run the Youth Clubs and Play Schemes - in fact, we could not function without them! The time and effort they give is invaluable to our children and young people. We are always keen for new parents or carers to join our Committee and lend a hand - you will be guaranteed a warm welcome!

Day in the Life of a Ship Parent
One of our parents kindly agreed to share her experience of what it's like to have a child with severe disability. Her account will resonate with many parents and carers who've gone through similar experiences. Sharing experiences like this can sometimes help us realise we're not alone facing our daily challenges.
