New QPG Partners - Sport For Confidence
Sport for Confidence is a unique, pioneering, and multi-award-winning organisation, which supports people who face barriers to participation to get involved in a variety of sporting activities in mainstream settings.
This unique partnership between leisure centres and local sports clubs sees health professionals working directly with sports coaches and staff, to make adjustments that create truly accessible sport and leisure opportunities.
Occupational Therapist, Sophie Garratt, is leading the model in The Moberly Sports Centre.
QPG are delighted to be working in partnership with them.
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.
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.
