Come along to an Inclusive Workshop run by Access Sport and GLL to see how your club can become inclusive of those with disabilities. Hear from both organisations about how they can help your club on this journey.
Access Sport’s disability inclusion Ignite programme works closely with local community clubs in London to develop their offer to be inclusive to all, ensuring young people with disabilities and/or long term health conditions have equal opportunities to participate in physical activity alongside their mainstream peers. Over the next three years we will be working across Greenwich, Southwark and Lewisham to support local community clubs and organisations to improve their inclusive sport and physical activity provision to include young deaf and disabled people and their families.
GLL is a charitable social enterprise that manages leisure centres, libraries and other community services under the ‘BETTER’ brand. We aim to help everyone in our local communities to be able to enjoy sport, physical and cultural activities. We want all members of our communities to experience the health & wellbeing benefits that our services can support. GLL would like to help any non profit local community groups – e.g. Clubs, schools, charities and social enterprises - to crowdfund projects that enable people to play, learn and be active together. We have in-kind support and resources help you hit your target, we are able to pledge support up to the value of £5,000 to eligible projects.
Together, we will be hosting a short workshop for clubs and organisations. This will go into detail on all aspects of running a successful fundraising campaign, as well as helping you learn more about disability inclusive sport and physical activity. You will also find out how the Ignite project can support you to be more inclusive and develop your sporting offer to be inclusive to young people with disabilities.
