Working with Young People with
and Physical Disabilities
The Community Sports Foundation is continually working to ensure that members of the community disadvantaged by learning or physical disabilities can gain equal access, not only to our initiatives but to existing sports provisions.
It is The Foundations belief that we have a duty to help raise public awareness of sport for disabled people, assisting where possible in helping to achieve the government objective of increasing the number of disabled people in sport across the board - whether as a participant, trainer or administrator.
This commitment requires our coaching staff to be highly experienced and qualified with the ability to coach a multitude of sporting disciplines.
Where possible the Community Sports Foundation seeks to integrate participants with Learning and Physical Disabilities into our mainstream coaching and activities, however we accept that in some cases this is simply not a viable option. The Foundation is committed to trying to ensure that every potential participant can benefit from our services and we will work closely with parents of children and young adults who are unable to partake in our standard programs.
We welcome enquires from organisations wishing to develop sporting provisions for members of the community disadvantaged by Learning or Physical Disabilities. The Foundation does not currently operate any specific grant programs aimed at this specific group or individuals. However applications can be made for assistance through the current grant programs offered by the Foundation.
The Trustees are prepared to explore individual requests for assistance outside of the current grant application process. They are happy to consider any specific requirements or potential sports coaching ideas you may have as long as they serve to engage appropriately with participants with Learning and Physical Disabilities and that the idea meets the Foundations objectives.
