Multi Sports Activities for Disabled Young Adults 18-25
SLSL is seeking funding for a sports development officer directly targeting disabled young adults. The development officer will manage the design and delivery of new activities including, but not limited to, football, tennis, cricket, power chair football, boccia, new age kurling and seated volleyball.
- Increase participation in regular physical activity with 300 plus disabled young adults. Improve levels of physical fitness and reduce social isolation as they increase their level of social interaction.
- Improve levels of concentration and improve levels of communication by increasing participation in activities.
- Improve mental health and wellbeing by increasing overall happiness, ensuring all activities are inclusive and fun, thus increasing enthusiasm to be involved, sense of own worth, and their articulation and enjoyment of sessions and participation.
How we will achieve our goals
We are aiming to make innovative and significant practical differences to disabled people’s lives. We want to build bridges making people feel connected, healthy, and part of a more understanding community. Our track record is proof of our enduring success.
Where the money will go
The project is vital to enable some of the most isolated and marginalised people in the community to participate in sporting activities, and to maximise the benefits by developing a whole new range of activities that will provide disabled young adults many more opportunities to have fun, be physically active and live a healthy life.
