We regularly ask for feedback from parents/carers and children about our clubs. Here is a sample of the responses we have received from parents & carers whose children attend our clubs for children with a disability or an additional need:

Question: Do you think your child is benefiting from attending the Sport Works club and if so how?

Responses:

‘Yes, he really enjoys going, as he does a good variety of things. He loves to go and run some energy off, and I feel he is becoming more confident. Especially playing in a group and turn taking.’

‘Yes, he is doing physical activities, learning about different sports and learning to be with other children and adults (not family)’

‘Very much so, it enables him to enjoy sport without the negative comments he receives at school’.’
