Inclusion and Accessibility

Taking Part

How can a child or young person with SEND take part in this activity

We think the first time a child or young person visits SportsAble they should have a positive experience. That is why we ask parents/carers to get in touch before their first visit by emailing sportsdevelopmentofficers@sportsable.co.uk or calling 01628 627690. We can then have a chat about the young person’s needs to ensure the session is suitable and their first visit to SportsAble is a positive experience. We believe that being active is very important to overall health and well-being and a positive first experience will help to encourage regular involvement.
