What is the Active Kids for All Inclusive Community Training?

The AK4A Inclusive Community Training is a scheme designed primarily for those who directly support disabled people within the community; these people are likely to be from the community and disability sectors as opposed to sports basedorganisations or backgrounds. The training will help this network to develop the skills and confidence to include disabled people in sporting activity.

Under the Sainsbury’s Active Kids banner, the initiative is being supported by a £1 million pound investment from Sport England and will be delivered through the English Federation of Disability Sport and sports coach UK.

Who is the Active Kids for All Inclusive Community Training designed to support?

The AK4A Inclusive Community Training will be designed to support:

  • Support workers including those in day, community and faith centers
  • Parents
  • Carers
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Volunteers
  • Community based groups and organisations

Those people working within sport specific environments will be signposted to access inclusion training identified or provided by their National Governing Body of sport (NGB).

Those people based in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will be signposted to their relevant home country disability sport organisations.

What’s involved? What does the Active Kids for All Inclusive Community Training cover?
