Sport For You Project


Remember how great last year’s Sport For You sessions were? With this year’s funding from WPH Charitable Trust we’re now ready to go again with a further 12 Sport Based Workshops for young people aged 11-19 years old in Warwickshire, commencing Thursday 2nd March! The sessions will be overseen by a Sporting Mentor and staffed both by skilled specialist sport coaches known as Sporting Contributors,who all offer expertise in their sport, alongside our own Entrust Care Partners and Volunteers who’ll ensure the young people can access the sport activities.

The programme supports disabled youngster’s aged between 11 and 19 to access a variety of outdoor sports in order to improve levels of fitness through exercise.

We’ve major support again from the fabulous Wasps RFC who agreed to be part of this very special sportforyou.com project. Lots of exciting and memorable activities are planned so if you think these sessions would be great for your child or young person – let us know by sending a referral form and we’ll be back in touch.

Independence Buddies

Young disabled people share the same aspirations as those who do not have additional needs. They look forward to adulthood, getting a job, having a relationship, gaining independence to go out by themselves and socialising in a safe way. Our supportive groups are for those aged over 14 and focused on these key learning themes to support the transition to adulthood.

The sessions combine theory and practice and encourage young people to make choices and plan for the future. Skilled support staff, youth workers and volunteers are ‘independence buddies’ and they work together with other specialists in relevant fields to enhance the experience for those attending.

Our sessions finished last year but we’re always looking for new funding to be able to offer more so look out for dates.

Out & About Service

In October 2014 we launched a brand new service, thanks to the generosity of BBC Children in Need!

The Out and About Service provides volunteer befrienders who work with families across Warwickshire and Solihull to offer the opportunity for disabled children and young people to enjoy activities of their choice, out and about in the community or at home with the support of a volunteer. We regularly publish a blog on the Share the News page, so keep checking to see how it’s going.

We’re now into our FOURTH amazing year since this service started – NO WE CAN’T BELIEVE IT EITHER! and we’re still supporting lots of families. Every year we submit our report to BBC Children in Need, so they can see how well their money is being spent. Click here to download the full report

Let’s Get Healthy

These groups spanning school and college holiday periods support young people to participate in physical activities whether it is dance, team games, football or other sports in the local environment. The two-hour sessions are alternated to include healthy eating sessions, food variety, fabulous food and how the body works. Skilled support staff, volunteers and other relevant coaches will work initially in the Stratford area but with positive outcomes for young people’s health and well-being and a legacy of increased knowledge supporting the public health agenda, it is intended that these sessions would be actively pursued in other geographical locations. Watch this space for details on forthcoming groups.
