Access Sport is thrilled to launch the inclusive Club Network to over 300 community clubs that are transforming the lives of disadvantaged and disabled young people.

Driven by a shared objective to make inclusion the norm, the Inclusive Club Network provides additional support to all clubs that we work with.

The network helps clubs connect with the resources, inspiration, and training needed to sustain an inclusive sports club. This includes:

  • Regular inclusion-focused webinars, including inspirational talks and expert speakers
  • Access to the inclusion training and resources your club needs
  • A platform to showcase how their club is promoting inclusion
  • Invitations to in-person events, festivals and inspiring club visits
  • Collective action on matters of common interest, to create national-level change.

The Inclusive Club Network’s calendar of events will cover topics such as disability inclusion, women and girls inclusion, neurodiversity, capacity building and much more… 

Hayley Barton, Delivery Director commented:
“We are absolutely thrilled to launch the Inclusive Club Network! This community will act as a collaborative and inspiring space for community sports clubs to come together and share learning on inclusion and accessibility. As it develops, we will also support the collective action of clubs on matters of common interest and facilitate opportunities for clubs, coaches, and volunteers to meet. Looking longer-term, we see the network evolving into the number one hub for best practice in inclusive community sport.” 

Training, equipping and supporting clubs to provide inclusive sessions is the core focus of our work. By launching the Inclusive Club Network, we are offering long-term support to all the clubs we work with.

As the community grows we also plan to expand this offer to include more resources and events. Ultimately, we want to support as many clubs as possible to become more inclusive through this new network!
