Just as we are nearly ready to take a break to spend time with family and friends (even if virtually!), we are so pleased to finally announce that we were selected by Sport England in their call for Innovative Solutions to support people most affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. We are so proud to be one of the 27 organisations selected for support and we continue to develop, learn and collaborate with others to ensure children / young people with a disability can continue to remain active.
Our product - Active Families - helping families stay active, has been developed, challenged and tested by our good friends Seashell Trust and their families who visit their CADS programme.
More information will be released as we move into 2021 and the need for these programmes are still critical as most of the country moves into lockdown. Until the New Year - please see the links below:
