EFDS Inclusion Club Hub
EFDS has developed a free online toolkit to support clubs to include more disabled people in sport. Register on the site to gain more resources, signposting and advice. It can be used in a variety of ways within your club.
You can use it to audit your club to see how inclusive you are or as a resource to support your club's development. Perhaps use it to develop a club action plan, support your Clubmark process, or your general planning. As part of your results, you will have access to case studies and good practice examples.
