Sport Promoting Inclusion for the Disabled and Equal Rights in Yorkshire.
Spider-y enables those people in the community who can not take part in able bodied sports to take part in wheelchair sports and to enjoy participating in sport locally, nationally and internationally.
Spider-y also exists to promote understanding of the difficulties encountered by those who are disabled.Why the community needs us
We promote community participation in healthy recreation, in particular by the provision of facilities for playing of any sport capable of improving health. For example we set up sports clubs for the disabled and their friends and relatives, we offer sessions in schools and elsewhere to give the able-bodied the opportunity to experience disabled sport, and we offer courses to businesses and other organisations to enable staff better to understand life from a disabled aspect.Our impact on the community
A participant said, 'They recently took their road show to one of my primary schools where they provided a fantastic insight into the life of a disabled child, by offering the opportunity for a large number of children to have a go in a sports wheelchair and to participate in a multi-skills & basketball session. The feed-back from the children was fantastic!'
We hope to secure a place in the Super League and have representatives playing for England in the Wheelchair Tag Rugby World Cup in 2013.
