Charity of the Month: The Shippey Campaign
For making live sport accessible to those with sensory difficulties, The Shippey Campaign is our featured CHARITY OF THE MONTH.
Large sporting events can often result in sensory overload for fans with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). According to a 2014 NAS survey, 43% of individuals, families and carers affected by autism cite sensory difficulties as the reason for their non-participation in sport.
This abstract statistic became a challenging reality for parents Peter Shippey and Kate Shippey when their eldest child developed a love of football.
