Volunteers with Kids

SHIP and SPLASH provide a unique opportunity to develop citizenship and leadership among our young volunteers. Their view is they get as much out of it as the children they support, and it has an enormous positive impact on their social and life skills. The volunteers quickly realise what a huge responsibility they have, and equally how rewarding it is to support those who face great challenges with everyday life.  

During SHIP Youth Club and SPLASH Play Scheme, each child receives 1:1 support from a trained Volunteer, and the Volunteers are in turn supported by employed Play Leaders. Volunteers receive payment to cover expenses for the days they have volunteered.

SHIP and SPLASH carry out lots of fundraising throughout the year which volunteers can choose to be involved in. Volunteers are offered certification in MV awards and recognition for Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Volunteer Training

If you become a Volunteer with SHIP Youth Club and SPLASH Holiday Play Scheme you will be supported through a variety of relevant training, including:

  • Child Protection
  • Makaton
  • Challenging Behaviour

There is also an on-going training programme built into the Holiday Play Scheme, with particular emphasis on understanding conditions such as autism and the difficulties of having a learning disability.

On behalf of all the volunteers at SHIP and Splash, a huge thank you to Tia Martin from The Richmond Fellowship Scotland for coming along and providing us with a fantastic training day. We have learnt lots of information about What is autism, Communication and Positive Approaches to Challenging Behaviour. Also a huge thank you to Lisa Tainsh our secretary for putting on a fantastic lunch for us. It was a fantastic day for both volunteers and staff.
