Working with British Gymnastics to improve access to high quality gymnastic activities in the local community.


PACC has been working with British Gymnastics to explore about how increase opportunities for disabled children and young people to benefit from gymnastic activities.  The evidence clearly shows that being activity is good for young people’s physical and mental wellbeing, however evidence also shows that children and young people with disabilities have less opportunity to participate in community-based activities of any sort.  Working with British Gymnastics and local support services, we are looking to explore the barriers to families accessing local opportunities and how providers can work with families to make sessions accessible. 

Come along and talk to us about what support your young person would need to access gymnastic activity and to hear about how community gymnastics (including trampolining) aswell as being enjoyable and physical beneficial, offers significant opportunities for children and young people to develop social skills, mental wellbeing (resilience, self-esteem, confidence, emotional wellbeing, reducing anxiety and depression), team-work and potential to develop leadership skills. 

This event is aimed at parent carers of children and young people with a range of support needs, including those with complex support requirements and SEND practitioners from all service areas.
