ALL 2-Gether with Ledley!

Ledley King attended a session of the ALL 2-Gether Now Project at St Thomas More School, Wood Green, this week.

The Club captain took part in a series of multi-sports activities with children, some with physical disabilities and/or learning difficulties, and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coaches.

ALL 2-Gether Now aims to provide disability awareness training (including physical, sensory and learning) to young leaders and teachers working in education establishments. It provides unique training and resources around the inclusion of disabled athletes in sport and physical activity sessions.

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation run the project in partnership with 95.8 Capital FM's charity Help A London Child, PRO-ACTIVE North London, and the London Sports Forum for Disabled People.

Capital 95.8FM have described ALL 2-Gether Now as one of the most innovative projects they have ever funded.

The project has created opportunities for the Foundation to develop a disability awareness training service in Greater London and is already supporting the Middlesex Netball Association, Essex FA, The Hertfordshire County Sports Partnership and Middlesex University.

ALL 2-Gether Now aims to plan, deliver and execute 70 hours of disability awareness training in partnership with the school sports partnership development managers across education establishments.

The project targets young leaders, local coaches and various teaching staff and provides training so that they have the additional knowledge and confidence required to include disabled people within their sports sessions.

It also aims to develop a resource that compliments the various training schemes that have been delivered across the boroughs that can be used for best practice purposes.
