Xcessible Award

Clare Sports Parnership are presently taking part in a National pilot programme where we are trying to attain a Bronze Ribbon in the Xcessible award process. 

Clare  are one of 3 LSP’s and 3 NGB’s to deliver this pilot programme in 2020.

Xcessible is a four staged resourced pathway designed to support an LSP or NGB in the area of Inclusion and will support them through the process of developing and increasing their capacity to support people with disabilities to be active in their sport in terms of participation, coaching, volunteering and  officiating.  Xcessible has been developed using the Sports Inclusion Disability Charter as a guiding tool.  The LSP will be guided through each stage of the journey under the headings of Openness, People, Activities, Facilities and Promotion. 

As we work through the objectives we will be engaging with you our members in this process. To find more about Xcessible and Sports Inclusion Disability Charter please click the following Bronze Level Objectives Outline
