Inclusion

Working in partnership with the Activity Alliance and disAbility Cornwall, Active Cornwall aims to deliver an inclusive programme for all young people and adults with a disability, enabling them to participate in mainstream sport and be active for life.

Whether you want to participate in an inclusive setting or take part in a disability sport specific event, there are many opportunities to get fit, try out new sports, join a club and compete.

Activity Alliance has created this tool in partnership with Club Matters to see how inclusive and accessible your organisation is when meeting the needs of disabled people.

Being a successful organisation means being inclusive and accessible to everyone. All participants and volunteers need to feel valued and have equal access to participation or volunteering opportunities. Ensuring an organisation meets its participants’ and volunteers’ needs means that people may then share their experience and encourage others to join, helping the organisation to grow and become more sustainable.

Disabled people can face additional challenges and barriers to participating and volunteering. These barriers are  explored in more detail on the Club Matters ‘Engaging with disabled people’ page. Guidance can also be found on the ‘How to create an inclusive environment’ webpage. It provides information on how to make your organisation’s offer welcoming to everyone.

“We Are Undefeatable” is a movement supporting people with a range of long term health conditions, developed by 15 leading health and social care charities and backed by expertise, insight and significant National Lottery funding from Sport England. Our purpose is to support and encourage finding ways to be active that work with each person’s conditions, not against them.

Being Undefeatable is understanding that how you feel can change from day-to-day, that everybody’s situation is unique, and that moving more when you can is just as important as accepting when you can’t. We believe that every achievement, no matter how small it might seem to someone else, is worth celebrating.
