Education & Training

Workshop description

This workshop builds on the successful delivery of its predecessor, the Sainsbury’s Inclusive Community Training. It will equip you with the skills to be an inclusive coach for all population groups and abilities. The workshop also focuses on how to engage disabled people and those with long term health conditions more effectively in activities.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • learn how to support disabled people to be more active through Activity Alliance's ten principles
  • understand how your sessions can be inclusive and how you can create and adapt your own activities using STEP and the Activity Inclusion Model
  • explore where you can find more information for yourself and the people you support

Who is the workshop for?

  • Those delivering physical activity sessions
  • Local community activators (working for example in disabled people’s organisations, community interest charities, housing sector and scout/guide groups )
