DSP Information Packs

infopack front sheet w

Please ask for one!

We have created an information pack about disabled target shooting and the work of the Disabled Shooting Project.

Latest news: New leaflets and PowerPoint added. See up-date below.


Each pack contains information sheets, copies of our suite of leaflets on various aspects of disabled target shooting, posters promoting the project and the Disabled Shooting Year, a list of useful contacts, and a CD. On the disk is a multi-purpose PowerPoint presentation, an album of photographs illustrating accessible disciplines and a range of disabilities, plus electronic versions of the leaflets.

Up-date: Three new leaflets (Welcome! introducing the DSP and its work, Clay Target Shooting and Full-bore Rifle & F Class) have been added to the pack, together with a new PowerPoint presentation An Introduction to Blind/VI Shooting.  More information about these is in DSP News.  Anyone who has already received an information pack, and wishes to have copies of these items to bring it up to date, may request them from the Co-ordinator (see below).   

Our hope is that these packs will be found useful in a variety of ways; for example:

  • Clubs that would like to become more disabled-friendly can see what has been done at other venues, and consider what types of disabilities they might be able to cater for.
  • Disability support organisations, schools and colleges, and other bodies can find out more about participation in our sport, and decide whether they would like to help their members, students, etc. become involved in disabled target shooting.
  • The packs can be included as supporting documentation with applications for funding, local authority planning bodies, etc. to inform grant-giving bodies or local authorities that may well know nothing at all about the reality of target shooting.
  • For a promotion or publicity event the pack provides an “instant display” that can be used on a stand, at a public library, in an information office window, at a “taster day”, etc.

Packs are available by post or in electronic format, on request from Liz Woodall, DSP Co-ordinator.  Please note that if multiple hard copies are requested by one body we may have to make a small charge to cover production costs.  The contents of the information pack are also available on-line.  Please see the Information Sheet in our Downloads section which explains how to access the pack contents. 

If you are aware of anyone or any organisation who would appreciate a copy of the pack, please either ask for one and pass it on, or give Liz Woodall the details so that we can send one direct.
