We are really happy to share with you our exciting new network, Telford and Shropshire Special Olympics.
This network incorporates over 12 partners and will bring new activities and experiences for people with Learning Disabilities from age 5 upwards. Creating opportunities to meet new people, get out more in the community and take part in physical activity, all whilst learning new skills.
We have had an immense amount of support from Special Olympics Great Britain to create a network in this area from highlighted need and demand, in particular around Telford, and also wider Shropshire. With plans already in place to host regional events from 2019.
We are launching the network through an Activity Taster Month, running throughout the whole of September, offering free activities for all taking part with no commitment. I have attached the brochure which contains over 40 sessions from Swimming to Judo, Netball to Sailing, Horse Riding to Football and many more. The brochure can also be found and downloaded online at www.energizestw.org.uk/so
We would really appreciate you sharing and disseminating to ensure it reaches the right hands, whether that be a participant, support worker or a parent/carer. This is a fantastic opportunity to combat isolation, reduce inactivity and generally encourage better health and wellbeing for individuals and families across the County.
