WheelPower, the national charity for wheelchair sport are responding to the reported lack of opportunities for young disabled people with the launch of the new ‘Feel Inspired’ programme.

Throughout 2016 a series of seven major sports events in cities across the nation will enable over 300 children to discover a range of sports and accessible physical activities. Birmingham is confirmed as the first host city for the programme which will benefit from WheelPower’s successful partnership with the key organisations in the city following a sports event in 2015.

Funded by a £55,000 donation from Thomas Cook Children’s Charity the Feel Inspired sports camps is aimed at children aged 6-11 with a physical impairment.

The creation of ‘Feel Inspired’ is an active and positive response to the ‘Active Beyond Education? report partly commissioned by WheelPower which highlights that providing early positive experiences of sport and engaging disabled people in sport and physical activity at a young age is critical.
