Welcome to Neath and Port Talbot's page on the Disability Sport Wales Website.
My name is Victoria Radmore, Disability Sport Wales Development Officer for Monmouthshire. I am based at Physical Activity & Sport Service, Library Resource Centre.
Within Neath and Port Talbot there are currently existing clubs and provisions offering a variety of sporting activities for disabled people, ranging from Football to Archery.
If you are a coach or volunteer there is also the UK Disability Inclusion Training Course (UK DIT) which is currently available in Wales, courses run several times over the year so please contact me for upcoming dates.
In order to help support clubs deliver good quality sessions Disability Sport Wales have introduced insport. insport is a four tiered (Ribbon, Bronze, Silver and Gold) identification and accreditation process which any sports club can go through to show they are committed to providing and delivering inclusive sport. If you are a mainstream club providing inclusive sport already or would like to please contact me. Look out for the insport logo that highlights some of the most inclusive sports clubs across Wales.
I update the website on a weekly basis with news, events and up and coming courses to please check regularly!
