Sports & Physical Activities Projects

Our students run a range of outreach projects based around the benefits of sports and physical activity for mind, body and soul!

Participation Football

This project has been developed alongside staff from Team Durham at Maiden Castle Sports Centre, and involves organising regular friendly football games for local adults with complex needs. Volunteers assist with organising the games and participating in them alongside the service users.

This project has a newly recruited leader for 2019/20 and will be looking for volunteers in October 2019 - so watch this space!

Community Wellness

This project provides gym-based and otudoor multi-sport sessions engaging community members (from a variety of complex needs backgrounds) in varying levels of physical activity. Volunteers will assist with planning and delivering these sessions.

Holiday Camps

The holiday camps are a great opportunity for a project leader to organise activities and volunteers for a range of children over the school holidays. The camps will feature a range of activities including craft activities and games. This project is ideal for anyone looking for extra experience working with children in a fun and lively environment.
