Tyne & Wear Disability Sport/Physical Activity Networking Event Sept 2018

I am delighted to be able to invite you to this year's Tyne & Wear Disability Sport/Physical Activity Networking Event. The purpose of the event is to enable organisations that regularly engage with disabled people, such as yours, to meet with organisations/sports clubs that provide sporting opportunities for disabled people. It aims to promote and develop stronger links between disability organisations/charities and sports organisations in Tyne and Wear, to help enable and encourage more disabled people to become more active and experience the many benefits that sport/physical activity has to offer. It follows on from the success of a similar event we held last year, but this year it will link into our Active Disability Month in September.

The event will take place on Thursday 27 September, 10:00 a.m. - 12 noon, at St James' Park in Newcastle, and is free of charge (please note that places need to be booked in advance).

On the day many disability sports providers will be hosting market stalls to promote their activities, and we are keen to see many charities and disabled peoples' organisations such as yourselves to sign up, so you can better understand what opportunities are on offer, and then promote them through your networks to disabled people living locally. Many of the providers deliver these opportunities for free, or at a heavily subsidised rate, as they have the funding to do so, but they would benefit significantly from the support of organisations such as yours to help to promote their activities and to develop new sessions.

We would love for you to be able to attend the event. To confirm whether or not you are able to attend please click on the link below and complete the information by Thursday 20 September at the latest.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at St James' Park in September. Please feel free to share this invitation with other disabled peoples' organisations or colleagues that you work with.

If you have any queries about the event please do not hesitate to contact me via email, or my details below.

Kind Regards,

 

Jack Liddle
