INTER-DISABLEMENT SERVICE CENTRE GAMESThe inaugural 2006inter-disablement service centre games scheduled for May 2007 will provideprimary amputees with an opportunity to experience a wide variety of sports,taught by specialist from the individual sporting governing bodies andassociations. There is much evidence that sport can play a major role in therehabilitation of a patient after a trauma, increasing their physical strength,independence and a sense of well-being. It is also a great way to maintain ahealthy lifestyle keeping people with reduced mobility fit and healthy forlonger enhancing their quality of life...

The individual participants will have theopportunity to take part in 13 different sports both recreationally andcompetitively over a three day period, providing them with the opportunity tofulfil their potential through offering an introduction to a number of keysports and providing them with a pathway to join the individual disabilitysporting associations after the games, where they can progress their skills.

 

These games will cost £15,000 to run and wecurrently have commitment from Chas. A Blatchfords to part fund the games. Atthis stage we are looking for sponsors, volunteers and the individualdisablement service centres to register their interest in taking park. Aninformation pack is available upon request.
