The Modern Print Inclusive Target Shooting Club has been awarded Disability Sport Wales’ Insport Club Ribbon.

Modern Print award Oct 2012 W

Insport is a Disability Sport Wales (DSW) programme, which aims to support organizations (national governing bodies of sport, local authorities and sports clubs) that provide inclusive, quality sessions for disabled people within their communities.

Angela Miles, disability sport development officer for Sport Pembrokeshire (the sports development arm of Pembrokeshire County Council) said she was delighted the club has received the award.

“The Insport programmes aim to help clubs and sports organisations develop inclusive provision, opportunity and practices which will ensure that disabled people gain access to the level of participation/performance they require,” she explained.  “The foundation for the programmes is the assumption that if the principles of inclusion are built into everyday practices, then everyone in the organisation will benefit.”

The club is now on its way to achieving the next level of the award, ‘Insport Bronze’.

Any club in Pembrokeshire that would like to go through the programme, or would like assistance on including disabled members, should contact Angela on 01437 776379 or 07920213651.
