Our commitment to the provision of sports for disabled young people is driven by a dedicated Disability Inclusion Sports Co-ordinator (DISCO), which is possible through funding from BBC Children in Need.
In partnership with Higham F.C. and supported by Birmingham F.A, we offer a free disability football session.This disability football runs at The Nuneaton Academy Sports Centre on Tuesdays 5-6pm. This session is for 5-16 year olds with a disability.
The session is free, so come along and join in the football fun, whatever your child’s disability.
A community session runs from Bulkington Village Centre on Wednesdays (Term Time only) 5.30 - 6.30pm. This is a multi sport session that includes sports such as boccia, indoor kurling, archery, table tennis, golf and many more sports for 5-18 year olds with a disability.
This is part-funded through BBC Children in Need. Sessions are £4.
We have a team of coaches at Exhall Grange and Oakwood schools in the school term. They deliver an after school sports club for some of the children that attend the school funded. This is funded by BBC Children in Need.
The BBC Children in Need funding also helps us to deliver two disability family fun days per year. This day is a great way for all people living with a disability and their families/ carers to have a day to try new activities, find out more about local services and spend some time together as a family.
All of our activities are delivered by highly competent, qualified and enthusiastic Sports Coaches who all hold:
Therefore you can be assured your child will have a safe, enjoyable session. Our comprehensive suite of Health and Safety and Safeguarding policies also underpin all of our delivery.

Sessions are accessible for children upto the age of 18 with a disability or special needs and their siblings. There is no need to book.
