Re-launch our Community Clubs

Why we need your help

Dear supporters,

Please help us to reopen our Community Clubs so disabled people aren't left out of sport.

The last 12 months have been incredibly challenging for so many. As you know, lockdown meant we took the tough decision to close our 14 Community Clubs across London.

Without our weekly clubs, hundreds of disabled people have lost the only opportunity they have to meet friends, play sport and keep active. Levels of loneliness, isolation and inactivity among disabled people have increased, in turn reducing physical and mental health.

Now, with guidelines changing, there is light at the end of the tunnel. This September, a full 18 months after closing, we want to reopen our Community Clubs so disabled people can once again enjoy inclusive sport every week in their local community.

But we need your ongoing help.

With fundraising events still postponed, our income continues to be hit. However, with disabled people still disproportionately affected by the pandemic, we remain committed to safely opening our clubs.

As venues seek to recover financially from the pandemic, the cost of running our weekly sessions will increase.

With safety our top priority, we also want to provide each club with personal protective equipment so participants can feel confident about joining us again. This is an essential but additional cost for our charity.

The difference you will make

As communities across the country recover, it is more vital than ever that nobody is left out. Your support means we can:

- book COVID-secure spaces to run our weekly clubs across London so disabled people can participate in sport safely 

- provide PPE for our coaches and volunteers

- give disabled people the confidence to feel part of their local community once again

No matter how big or small, you really do change lives.

Thank you everyone.
