Disability Training for Clubs

Everything you need to develop Disability Football.

Disability Training for Clubs: Journey to Inclusion has been created to encourage more grassroots clubs to open their doors to disabled people, providing them with the opportunity to play and get involved with football in their local community.

The North-East Training Workshop is being held at Durham Cricket Club on Monday 18th March and is free to attend. Please use the sign-up form at the bottom of this article to register your place.

The new training is formed of two core elements:

Disability Toolkit For Clubs

The online toolkit has been developed with the support of Activity Alliance and takes the form of a simple disability inclusion health check for grassroots clubs by presenting a series of reflective questions shaped around six core pillars for clubs to consider. Working through the health check will help clubs understand their areas of strength as well as those that need development. 

It is filled with information, practical tips and resources all designed to help clubs to create an action plan which can be implemented to start or grow disability provision at their club.



If you require an Accessible Word format of the toolkit, please email or call 0800 169 2007.

Disability Training For Clubs

For those clubs that want to go one step further and take a deeper dive into the barriers disabled people face when accessing football and how to overcome them, or those who simply want some additional support in creating and implementing their action plan, there is also a calendar of workshops, hosted both locally and nationally, where the toolkit is brought to life through knowledgeable tutors.

The training workshops also offer the opportunity for clubs to network with other likeminded clubs, as well as hear real life case studies of clubs that have successfully grown to become more inclusive.
