Palace for Life supply 150 SEND activity packs in partnership with Access Sports
Palace for Life Foundation are delighted to partner with Access Sports to supply 150 activity packs to local young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
Set to be delivered throughout Croydon and south London, the activity packs contain a variety of equipment and workbooks to support parents and carers in keeping their young people active during lockdown.
Put together by Palace for Life coaches, the packs contain carefully selected equipment to best meet the needs of the young people in our community, with two different types of packs being created. The first of which is a multi-sports pack, which contains the likes of cones, beanbags and soft sports equipment. The second is a specific sensory pack, designed to stimulate the child’s five senses. This pack includes equipment such as bean bags, hitting hands and a Bell Airflow Ball.
Speaking about the initiative, Palace for Life Deputy Head of Sports and Wellbeing and Disability Manager, Michael Harrington said:
“Palace for Life Foundation are delighted to partner with Access Sports to help children and young people living with a disability in our local community. Together we are focused on giving these young people the chance to get fitter and have fun with their families during this current lockdown and the months ahead.
“It has never been more important for all of us to look after ourselves and those around us. These great activity packs, full of multi sports and specially selected sensory equipment, give everyone the chance to do that wherever they are.”
The packs will be delivered to five local specialist SEND schools, as well as Tweeddale Primary School, Fairchildes Primary School and Downsview Primary School to support their large population of SEND students.
