Description

This contract is for a project lead to deliver the Sport England funded Stepping Stones project over a 22 month period starting in March 2013 and ending in January 2015.

The project is focused directly on ascertaining the needs of disabled people over the age of 14 and creating the stepping stones to allow that person to participate, stay and succeed in sport.

The expectation is to meet with the disabled person, deconstruct the potential barriers to participation, support progression and assist with access into mainstream sports clubs or organisations.

The support required for a participant to progress along the sporting path could include access to dedicated coaching or courses, transport, equipment, mentoring, buddying, facility hire, or through support given to mainstream clubs. This will be achieved by the Project Lead supporting the participant to engage at a level commensurate with their needs.

The aim is to work directly with 200 disabled people over 22 months with at least 50 becoming regular participants in sport.

The project lead should have experience and knowledge of working directly with disabled people and with sports clubs and sports groups plus an ability to work directly with disability and community organisations.
