More Information on our Projects
Soll Leisure is excited to have successfully applied for Sport England’s ‘Small Grant’s funding stream to support adults with a range of disabilities to lead healthier, more active lifestyles. The funding will enable the programme to last for a year!
Our 'Disability Active' project will provide opportunities for adults (16+) to access and sustain participation in physical activity at the Park Club Milton, Oxfordshire.
The aim of the project is to improve accessibility to gym facilities and provide support to improve fitness levels. Health benefits include reducing the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes and improving coordination, balance, agility, and stamina. Participants will benefit from greater social interaction, confidence and self-esteem.
The eligibility for the sessions is as follows:
- Participants must be over the age of 16.
- Participants are eligible if they suffer any of the following disabilities, and are able to safely access the activity:
- Learning disabilities
- Down's syndrome
- Asperger's syndrome
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal cord injury
- Visual impairment and hearing impairment
Where a carer is required to support a participant, they can attend for free.
