For Wolves Foundation, inclusion delivery is a priority across every area of the charity’s work.
So while there are specific inclusion projects involved within the Foundation’s programme, it is also one of the charity’s key aims to ensure all of its activities are accessible to as many people as possible.
The Inclusion & Cohesion staff lead in this area along with the Equality, Diversion & Inclusion team to ensure delivery is inclusive to all abilities.
Staff are passionate about inclusion and cohesion and training is provided regularly in these areas.
Premier League Kicks and the Premier League Primary Stars programme operating in schools are just two of the many projects run by the Foundation which encourage inclusion, and they both carry specific targets around disability sport provision.
But, as mentioned, ensuring there is inclusive delivery extends across the rest of the Foundation including initiatives such as Premier League Inspires and Head for Health.
Wolves Disability FC is Wolves’ disability team which has developed extensively in recent years and is set to play a series of friendly fixtures over the 2021/22 season. Wolves Disability FC are proud to announce that the official sponsors for this season are Energy Angels.
The Foundation also supports and encourages grass roots disability teams which forms the start of a pathway which can lead to Wolves and then, for particularly talented players, progress via the FA pathway to the England disability set-up.
The Foundation are also delighted that inspirational mentor and speaker Jack Rutter, who himself progressed through the pathway to captain the England Paralympic team, is now an ambassador for the charity.
Wolves Disability FC run teams at Under-12, Under-16 and open age levels – for more details about the team and training possibilities contact Gavin Jones on (01902) 828366 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
