Helping young people overcome barriers

Argyle Community Trust has tremendous experience in working with children and adults with disabilities, helping them to use sport and education to overcome barriers to participating.

We aspire to provide equal opportunities in sport for all, our delivery in SEND schools and SEND departments within mainstream education, helps to raise aspirations and confidence among children and young people with physical and mental disabilities.

The younger age bracket is an essential time for an individual to discover their athletic prowess and our knowledge of coaching in this sector can prove to be a valuable asset to their development.

Mencap’s All Move Challenge

Argyle Community Trust are delighted to be a delivery partner for Mencap’s All Move Challenge for the 2020/2021 Academic Year.  The programme is delivered to children with a learning disability within Devon. The challenge has been designed to increase the opportunities for young people with a learning disability and autism to get physically active, aiming to improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

All Move participants will get to try a range of sports and activities as well as home activities. Participants from SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) schools across the county take part in the sport and physical activity challenge. The aim of the challenge is for pupils to complete a marathon of 26 hours of activity, one hour equates to one mile of a marathon.

With resources designed to motivate and inspire a positive outlook on exercise, the challenge aims to instil a sense of achievement that will leave a lasting impact on participants.
