Include Project - Glasgow

Include in Glasgow is funded by St James Charitable Foundation. 

21% of young people in Scotland are considered disabled but 80% of those young people wish they were more active

The Include Project aims to improve inclusion for young people with disabilities to get involved with sport and create more inclusive spaces for everyone. 

Four community sports group leaders from the Sported network have joined the project, gaining additional support to help make their groups more inclusive. 

Working with a Sported volunteer, they will develop and deliver an 18-month action plan, matching the need of their own communities and ensuring there is a range of disability inclusive activities to support young people in Glasgow. These are: 

Young Influencers

Fifteen young people have been selected as Include Project Glasgow Young Influencers. Aged between 13-18 and involved in the community sports groups involved in the project, they either have a disability or are passionate about disability inclusion in sport. 

The programme aims to provide them with a toolkit to champion inclusion and become future leaders in their community, attending 9 activity days and workshops to increase their skills and confidence. 

The programme will end with an event designed and delivered by the Young Influencers promoting awareness of and celebrating disability sport in Glasgow.
