Throughout August, Disability Sports Coach has hosted an Inclusive Summer of Sport festival, in celebration of the upcoming Paralympic Games and the recent return of grassroots sport. As part of festival, they are hosting a two-day virtual event on 24-25 August, including a short online presentation and panel discussions which you can sign up for below. We’re sorry this is at such short notice but we have only just been made aware of this opportunity and still wanted to share it with you in case you are able to attend.

The Inclusive Summer of Sport Festival highlights the importance of community in making physical activity inclusive, and how their Community Clubs ensure disabled people aren’t left behind as activities reopen.

  • A review of the impact of Covid-19 on our charity and our members
