Project 21

Project 21 – funded by The National Lottery Community Fund Young Start programme.

 

Sported has partnered with Scottish Disability Sport and Dundee Dragons Wheelchair Sports Club to improve inclusion for young people with disabilities and create more inclusive sports spaces for everyone.

 

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

Project 21 aims to tackle some of the barriers facing these young people and build new opportunities with groups working hard to deliver inclusive activities.

Young Influencer Launch

We met our Young Influencers, young people from community groups delivering sport across Dundee who are being provided with the toolkit to champion inclusion and be future leaders within their community. 

Highlights from this session included a workshop from Scottish Disability Sport on why inclusion is so important, as well as an afternoon of wheelchair sports activity delivered by Sported member Dundee Dragons Wheelchair Sports Club.

The Young Influencer programme will run for the next year, culminating in an event designed and delivered by the young influencers promoting awareness of and celebrating disability sport in Dundee. We can’t wait to see what our young influencers learn and how they contribute to making their community groups more inclusive spaces.
