Introduction to PiP
After 10 fantastic years at the helm of PiP, Bill Feeney the charity’s Director has decided to take a break before moving on to something different. Bill always led PiP from the front, ensuring that the values of our staff and volunteers are what makes the charity such a special place. He focused relentlessly on giving PiP students a voice and providing the highly personalised support needed to ensure that each of them lives the most active and fulfilled life possible.
Bill leaves a strong management team in place at PiP and we are fortunate to be able to take our time to recruit a new Director. As part of succession planning Rick Jensen will become Head of Services and Development, to lead on PIP’s key expansion project with support from Abi Levitt, Head of Fundraising and Communications. There will be changes to other roles which will be announced in due course and the team will be fully supported by the Board.
We are looking forward to a 2020 which will bring more exciting changes for PiP. Our expansion campaign, Project Beanstalk remains at the heart of the charity’s future. It will see us move into a new building so that we can expand our work and support more young people and adults with learning disabilities and autism who we know can achieve so much. PiP is ready to take the next step on its development journey.
Supporting adults with learning disabilities to achieve their potential

We are committed to encouraging and empowering people with disabilities to reach their full potential.
PIP offers a flexible and dynamic range of services, including accredited training and education, travel training, independent living skills, social and emotional development, employment skills and work placements, and support into mainstream education.
All of PIP’s activities focus on promoting choice, participation and independence.
