Newcastle United Foundation And Inspired Support Launch Pan Disability Partnership
Newcastle United Foundation is delighted to announce a new partnership with disability support provider Inspired Support.
With a specific aim of widening participation amongst participants with autism and learning disabilities, the partnership will open up the opportunity for those working with Inspired Support to take part in free Foundation weekly football sessions.
Delivered by specialist Foundation staff, with training in coaching disability football, sessions will endeavour to enable the attendees to learn new skills and gain new confidence in their abilities.
Foundation Pan-Disability sessions are funded through the Premier League/BT Disability Fund, as well as The FA Disability Workplace Fund (DWF).
Reggie Dornan, Senior Disability Football Development Officer at Newcastle United Foundation, said, “We are so pleased to formalise our partnership with Inspired Support. We have worked closely with the team in the past, supporting one of their elite players to be able to compete in The Costa Blanca Cup for the Foundation this Summer.
“We are very grateful to have funding from the Premier League / BT Disability Fund, which allows us to work with all organisations involved in Disability sport and activities. We can give people in our community, who may have been previously socially isolated, the opportunity to play football in a safe and fun based environment, which enables them to play the game to the best of the ability and reach their full potential”.
Inspired Support are one of the most innovative providers of support for people with Autism Spectrum Conditions and Learning Disabilities in the UK and pride themselves on enabling people to achieving success.
David Winship, Director at Inspired Support, added: “Inspired Support are delighted to be involved with Newcastle United Foundation. We are always looking for new, exciting and motivational opportunities for our members to access, and the Foundation provides an excellent way for them to engage with sport in a well supported, and safe environment, whilst having fun and learning new skills in football.”
