Through Nova Sports and Coaching North Somerset families who have a child with a disability and are in need can choose 5 pieces of sports equipment from a list of 34 items. There are options for indoor and outdoor use, adapted and sensory items.
The free equipment will also come with an Activity Pack full of adapted game ideas, sport specific skills, online activities, sports clubs for post lockdown and wellbeing activities.
Families can access the free package via a professional referral for example from their Social Worker, Family Intervention Worker or Teacher.
Families eligible for this scheme could include those on a low income (for example receiving free school meals), family member/s are struggling with their mental health, they are shielding at this time or the child’s behaviour is challenging at home.
A limited number of boxes are available and they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to refer a family visit: www.novasportsandcoaching.co.uk/sportscarepackages, for further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org / 07880743453.
