Include

Helping community groups become more accessible for young people who are blind or partially sighted.

Sported’s Include pilot project, run in partnership with Angel Eyes NI, helped community sport groups become more knowledgeable and accessible for young people who are blind or partially sighted, and provided opportunities for young visually impaired people to become involved in their local community sports groups.

 

Sported and Angel Eyes NI together developed and delivered an ‘Understanding Visual Impairment’ training programme and resources for community sport groups across NI. The groups also received Sported volunteer support to help embed the learning into their day-to-day activities.

 

The young people, along with their parents, offered their ‘lived experience’ to help groups understand how to make their activities and services more accessible and inclusive. In doing so, they helped create more opportunities for young people to become active in sport.
