Woking Inclusive Sports Club (WISC); this project is a multi sports project that is aimed at young people aged 7 - 19 with learning and physical disabilities.

Woking Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The club has been running since May 2014 with initial start up investment from Sport England. WISC provides a variety of inclusive activities, such as wheelchair basketball, new age curling and goalball, all of which are coached by enthusiastic coaches and volunteers. This project is really important to the disabled young people of Woking as it provides an chance to keep fit and socialise outside of school and it makes such a difference in building the confidece of these young people. The programme is proving very popular, with around 15 young participants taking part each week. Without further investment though, the long term risk of the club disbanding will once again leave no provision of these young people involved.

What we'll deliver:

  • Hire state of the art sports facilities to provide these young people with a positive experience of sport
  • Provide qualifications & training to parents and local young people so they can manage and run the club moving forward
  • Create low cost opportunities for local, disabled young people to keep active & stay healthy through sport
  • Provide inclusive and expert sports coaching to allow the young people to learn new skills and socialise with friends
  • Purchase new equipment to increase the sports we can offer to these young people

Why it's a great idea:

What the participants say about the programme

“I like the fact that I don’t get picked last”
“I really like the coaches, they are good”
“I like that we do basketball”
“It is good that we get to do a bit of everything, and I like beating my dad at Boccia”
“I like whizzing round the hall on the wheelchairs, it really takes the pressure off so I don’t have to use my frame”

Steps to get it done:

  • Without this funding the club will not be able to continue
  • This funding will allow for the continuation of the club
  • This project is already in place with a number of local young people attending each week
  • Volunteer and parent training courses, will allow them to take ownership, making the club sustainable
