Havering Health and Sports Development started up a Disability Steering Group working with partners such as Positive Parents, Youth Service, YMCA, Local Clubs, Havering SENCO, School Sports Collective, Local Schools and Colleges to develop disability sport in the borough to develop disability sport in the borough. From the steering group and gathering feedback from children and parents of children with disabilities we have successful delivered holiday activities consisting of local clubs delivering taster sessions during our Para Active Event. Due to the success, we were able to secure funding from London Sport to deliver our Para Active Sessions as a weekly satellite club based at the YMCA where local clubs have been invited to deliver block sessions to introduce our participants to all the sporting opportunities in the borough. This also provides them with exit routes to feed in to once they have established an interest and built their confidence with the instructor and sport (one of the common barriers in participating in sporting activities).
