Disability Sports Coach’s award-winning Community Clubs are specialist, weekly sports activities for all disabled people. Formed in 2013, the Community Club programme is currently being delivered across 12 London boroughs with 14 Community Clubs in total.
The purpose of the Community Club network is to ensure disabled people are more active, more often, whilst being integrated in their local community with the opportunity to develop independency and social skills.
Community Clubs aims and objectives are:
- Improve disabled people’s physical, mental and social wellbeing by attending weekly sessions, competitions and annual events
- Provide support to ensure members are able to access other opportunities to be more integrated in their local community
- Support and train disabled people and their network to become volunteers and coaches, creating a more representative workforce
