New Focus on Disability Sport

Posted by Thomas Ron, 22/07/2013

Hello all,

I hope your summer is going alright and you can spare a moment to look upon this blog.

One of the major activities of my predecessor was the Access All Activities initiative, which sought to ensure that activites and sports were accesible to students with disabilities.  During her term she set the groundwork and started the process along.  This is laudable and I intend to continue working to make some progress.

The York Student Think Tank has produced an excellent report on what they should be done (for anyone who wants to see the report please e-mail access@yusu.org and I will forward it).  I am working to forward their reccomendations.  We will be choosing a Disability Sport Activator to spearhead the Union's support for disability sport.

In the long term, we are looking at reforming the sports centre and holding disability sport events at Sports Day and even at Roses
