DSY 100 Club
The DSY 100 Club
We launched the DSY 100 Club at our 25th Anniversary Awards Dinner in March 2018. We are asking 100 people to support us by pledging £10 a month (less than buying a weekly cup of coffee in town). This will bring in £12,000 a year which will enable us to start the delivery of a new ‘Sporting Futures’ programme. The donation you are making will also enable us to apply for match funding from other sources.
The Sporting Futures Programme
We will extend a successful pilot recently run in West Yorkshire to include disabled young people across the region. We will recruit a cohort of disabled young people in each of the County areas of Yorkshire. Each participant will take a basic course in first aid and health and safety and will graduate as a sport leader and coach in at least one sport of their choice. Individuals will also gain practical experience by volunteering in a sports or activity club in their local area. . We believe that this is an important way to build capacity so young disabled people have more choices where and how they can get involved in sport. Several of the young people in the pilot have subsequently gained part-time employment in sports organisations
