Sport for Confidence
Sport for Confidence delivers programmes which encourage people with and without Learning Disabilities to participate together in sport and physical activity groups. Activities covered include Multi-Sports, Boccia, Inclusive Dance and Swimming. The original programme was designed through a unique partnership between the Occupational Therapy Learning Disability Service (South Essex Partnership University NHS Trust) and Everyone Active at Basildon Sporting Village. Activity sessions are not considered nor promoted as disability sport in that they are accessible and inclusive for all members of the local community. This approach is also championed by Special Olympics through their Unified Sports programme which was inspired by the principle that ‘playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding’.
