Great ideas created by the community, for the community. Pitch your project by 14th September 2022.
We would like to set up pan-disability sports skills training sessions. This would be East Cheshire Eye Society working in partnership with the Disability Information Bureau. This project would encourage and enable people with disabilities to learn new skills, it would bring people with disabilities into the local community and it would teach basic sports skills that may then lead on to involvement with specific sports - possibly for people who otherwise may never have taken part. In addition, this project will address the ever present challenges of isolation, loneliness and a lack of confidence experienced by many people with disabilities.
