What is Sport for Confidence all about?
Sport for Confidence is a unique, award winning pioneering organisation, driving the provision of inclusive sporting opportunities in mainstream leisure facilities. People come to Sport for Confidence sessions to experience the physical, mental and social benefits of activity and exercise, all sessions are active, fun and accessible.
Sport for Confidence programmes place health professionals and specialist coaches into leisure centres, to provide inclusive sporting opportunities to people who face barriers to participation, including those with learning disabilities, mental health issues, dementia, autism, physical impairment or disability, homelessness, and many other complex health needs.
The role of the health professional and sports coaches ensure the environment is accessible and sessions are adaptive, making reasonable adjustments and breaking down barriers to ensure that a persons first experience is a positive one.
Attendance at Sport for Confidence promotes independence, improves confidence and self-esteem to support individuals to gain the full physical and mental benefits of physical activity. The role of the allied health professional also offers the chance to signpost clients to relevant support services in the health, sport and leisure sector.
Additionally, we work with a range of different partners, ranging from regional and national public health teams, national governing bodies of sport, local clubs, charities and many more.
