Connecting Differently Through Sport workshop

Do you or your Club support people with a disability to take part in sport and physical activity?

Sense charity believes that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential.

Sense has partnered with UK Coaching to launch a new online learning classroom aiming to help improve the sports sector's confidence and knowledge when working with sensory or complex disabilities.

Their "Connecting Differently Through Sport" workshop aims to increase your awareness, teach specialist skills and build your confidence when supporting disabled people to access sport. It is aimed at people in a range of different roles. The workshop is useful for PE teachers, health and social care organisations or charities, sports development professionals and leisure centre staff, including front of house staff. 

Now held virtually or in person, the workshop includes a mixture of theory, learning and practical activities. The workshop will help you to
  • Understand how different disabilities may affect someone taking part in a sports session
  • Learn about the barriers that people with sensory impairments and complex disabilities face and solutions to overcome them
  • Communicate with people with sensory impairments and complex disabilities in a sports setting
  • Feel more confident to adapt a sport and physical activity session to make it more accessible to all

You can book an in person or virtual workshop as an individual or organisation. It’s preferable if you attend a workshop based in the region that you live or work in.

The workshop is suitable for those aged 16 and older. If you're under 18 you must be accompanied by an adult. You'll recieve a certificate of attendance after each training session.
