Club supporting inclusion campaign for disabled supporters
15 March 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur is proudly supporting Level Playing Field (LPF) during its Weeks of Action, an initiative that promotes the message of access and inclusion for all disabled supporters across the country.
With equality and inclusion at the forefront of everything we do, the Club has dedicated this Sunday’s fixture against Southampton to supporting LPF.
With the appointment of our Disabled Access Officer, Jon Dyster, we have looked to improve the match day experience of all supporters with disabilities or impairments through disability awareness training for staff and improved signage around the ground.
We have introduced ‘accessible toilets’ within the signage at White Hart Lane to ensure all our supporters feel comfortable using our facilities - including those with disabilities or impairments that cannot be seen, such as Colitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD),Crohn’s Disease and for those on the Autistic Spectrum.
The Club holds regular dialogue with its Disabled Supporters’ Association around access requirements for the new stadium and the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation delivers a range of initiatives aimed at increasing access to sport and physical activity, as well as employment opportunities, for local people with disabilities.
LPF is a campaigning and advisory organisation working on behalf of all disabled supporters to share good practice, raise awareness and promote improved access to sports stadiums for disabled fans and disabled people who aspire to attend live sporting events. LPF uses the unique voice of sport to improve access and inclusion for disabled people across wider society by working alongside sports bodies and government.
