We work with Grampian Disability Sport and have key links with schools, day centres and other agencies to deliver a coordinated approach to disability sport across Aberdeenshire. With Scottish Disability Sport and Grampian Special Olympics, we ensure people with disabilities are included in sport and physical activity opportunities
With our partners we:
Active Schools fully encourages children with physical, sensory and learning disabilities to attend our sessions. Our coaches have attended various workshops and training sessions approved by Scottish Disability Sport and have experience in working with youngsters with a variety of additional support needs. We invite parents and carers to talk to us about their child’s specific needs and to let us know about any measures we should put in place to accommodate their child. If there is a need for one-to-one supervision of the child we would invite a carer or parent along to the sessions.
Our Disability Sport sessions are available during term time and are run as blocks of sessions where payments are made at the first attendance. To take part in these sessions or get more information contact our Sports Officer.
