Football session with children from Parkgate Junior School

Sport can have a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities and can play a key role in the lives and
communities of people with disabilities, the same as it can for people without a disability.
There is a wealth of evidence to support participation in sport and physical activity for people with a disability concerning trends, barriers and benefits of participation. Over the past three decades, numerous studies have revealed that physical activity and sport participation result in improved functional status and quality of life among people with selected disabilities.
Scientific research has been conducted across disability groups that reveal participation in sport and physical activity leads to improved levels of physical health and well-being. 
Sport and physical activity has also been shown to improve physical fitness and general mood in psychiatric patients with depressive and anxiety disorders. Additionally, sport and physical activity has been linked to improvements in self-confidence, social awareness and self-esteem and can contribute to empowerment of people with disabilities. 

Our sport sessions are held every Tuesday morning, 11.30-12pm, with Mark from the Watford FC Sports and Education Trust.  Sessions include activities such as football, table tennis, indoor bowls, darts....or anything else you may like to do!
