Sport For Confidence (Canvey Island)

Sport for Confidence is a unique, pioneering and multi-award-winning organisation, which supports people who face barriers to participation to get involved in a variety of sporting activities in mainstream settings. This unique partnership between leisure centres and local sports clubs sees occupational therapists and health professionals working directly with sports coaches and staff, to make adjustments that create truly accessible sport and leisure opportunities. Additionally, Sport for Confidence consults and offers workshops and training opportunities to organisations including Local Authorities, National Governing Bodies of sport, and Leisure Operators, looking for expert knowledge and support to make their opportunities more accessible.
