Specialist Disability Programmes

The Foundation of Light runs a number of disability programmes to ensure all young people across the region can enjoy sport and an active lifestyle.

‘Making Moves’, the Foundation of Light’s disability coaching team, provides opportunities for more than 1,000 youngsters and adults with disabilities to take part in a wide variety of sports.

In the last year the Foundation has become the pilot club in the North of England for Down’s Syndrome coaching, which expands a substantial offering that includes in and after-school coaching, the Learning Difficulties League, Pan Disability weekend sessions and sign language coaching.

During term times the Foundation operates Pan Disability and Down’s Syndrome coaching sessions at Crowtree Leisure Centre in Sunderland on Saturday mornings.
