Are you able to help?

Here at the Shirlie Project, we have been creating Supported Employment within the Highlands since 1994 and we need you to help us continue our services in your local area

As a charity, we only have a small percentage of our annual income that comes from the Scottish Government and the European Social Fund. These contracts are guided towards specific training and delevopment needs for individuals but do not contribute to the overall running of our charity.

There are many ways you can help us within the Highland community and fundraising is an essential part of ensuring we can continue to provide Supported Employment locally;

  • Hold a bake sale or coffee morning
  • Bungee jump/ Skydive
  • Bag a Munro
  • Compete in a local event and raise money for us
  • Share a ride for the week? Donate to us the money saved from your daily commute
  • Have a clear out and join a Car Boot Sale to raise pennies

We have had great fun in 2017 with different events, fundraising sessions, competing in local competitions and holding events within Shirlie Project to help us carry on our mission in the Highlands!

Whether you want to host an event, challenge yourself or organise your own event, every pound you raise will help us make a difference.

Taking part in a sponsored event is a great way of raising funds to help our local community while challenging yourself. Whether you’d like to cycle, swim or skydive, a wide range of events across the Highlands are now available. 

Or if fundraising over a slice of cake is more your cup of tea, why not host a tea party? It’s a good reason to get your church, school or local community together, or just inviting your friends over for a cuppa!
