The programme has been established through a £1.6 million investment from Sainsbury’s and is delivered across the UK through a partnership between; Disability Sport Northern Ireland, Disability Sport Wales, English Federation of Disability Sport, Scottish Disability Sport, supported by the British Paralympic Association and the Youth Sport Trust. Since 2012, it has provided free training to over 10,000 individuals; benefiting over a quarter of a million young people with special educational needs and disabilities across the UK. 

“It gave us the opportunity to evaluate our current PE offer and then provided the confidence and knowledge needed to ensure PE experiences are high quality for all of our learners.”

School, Wolverhampton
