KITERIGHT IS THE WORLDS FIRST CHARITY DEDICATED TO USING KITE-SPORTS IN ALL ITS FORMATS TO HELP, SUPPORT, EDUCATE AND DEVELOP PEOPLE OF ALL AGES WITH PHYSICAL, MENTAL HEALTH OR LEARNING CHALLENGES.

The charity has two main aims:

  • Firstly to increase access and participation in kite sports for these individuals, increasing their self worth, self esteem, community access and participation.  The word “can’t” is not used in your vocabulary as we believe everyone no matter how severe their disabilities or challenge “can” participate in one way or another.  We also reinvest in those who want to be involved in the KiteRight process, by helping them to become assistant instructors, or other positions within the charity all the way up to board level.
  • Secondly to work with academic institutions such as Bournemouth University to engage in and commission on clinical research as to why Kite Sports can have such a profound effect physically and emotionally on so many people. This will involve Psychology, Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy and Nursing students and academics.  We aim to publish research finding in academic and sports journals.
  • We also engage with other student programmes including event management, product design, graphics, film and media and engineering.
  • Are we about working with people with disabilities ? - yes
  • Are we about working with people with sensory loss ? - Yes
  • Are we about working with people with mental health issues - Yes
  • Are we about working with children and young adults? - Yes
  • Are we about working with disadvantaged and disengaged people - Yes

We are about working with EVERYONE and supporting using kite sports to make a real, measurable and meaningful difference to peoples lives, wellbeing and futures.

High hopes ? Impossible dreams ? Unachievable goals ? ... Many may think so...

So be part of something special and lets prove the cynics wrong and show that a community, national and international can push for social change, acceptance and support for the many who would not normally be able to access the sport and make a difference to their lives.
