It has been a great success with 5 centres and over 75 adults involved in activities including Boccia, Basketball, Walking and Games for All. The centres have linked with each other to deliver weekly programmes in these sports and then come together at the end of an agreed period to participate in a fun event/blitz in that particular sport.

The Adult Games for All programme delivered in conjunction with the IT Sligo Health Science Department and its third year students also shows how effective partnership working can result in more participation opportunities for people with disabilities. The SSRP SIDO worked in close consultation with two Health Science lecturers to develop a tailored four week Games for All programme which catered for 55 adults from local ID centres.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”8628″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1459864795229{padding-top: 100px !important;}”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full-width-content” css=”.vc_custom_1459478440160{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”“I found the entire experience invaluable.

Awesome walls have a fantastic climbing wall which is an artificially constructed wall with grips for hands and feet. With fully qualified instructors this inclusive wall climbing initiative was very well received by all who took part.

Participants came from a range services around Cork including national Learning Network, COPE Foundation Glasheen and Mallow and Brothers of Charity Services. Angelina Foley of COPE Foundation staff stated all of our group progressed very well over the period of the programme, especially when you think that on the first day two participants were extremely nervous and even shaking at the thought of it. With their determination made it to the top of every single climb they did”. She added “each participant improved their climbing techniques, tried out different routes, got much faster completing the climbs. For one of our participants who has a visual impairment had the expert assistance of Anto (Awesome Walls instructor) every day. However on the very last day she completed a solo climb without any assistance, it was amazing to see her progression and confidence grow over the weeks”.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full-width-content” css=”.vc_custom_1459478451614{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”“It gave me a chance to get over my fear of heights and that I can still do it even though I have a visual impairment”” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:36|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:300%20light%20regular%3A300%3Anormal” css=”.vc_custom_1459478047080{margin-bottom: 60px !important;}” el_class=”width-950″][vc_custom_heading text=”Inclusive Wall Climbing Participant” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:30|text_align:center” css=”.vc_custom_1459478462887{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”8635″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1459350704437{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full-width-section” css=”.vc_custom_1459349666762{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 45px !important;padding-bottom: 45px !important;background-color: #1c202d !important;}”][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”List of Participating Local Sports Partnerships and their contact details” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:24|text_align:left|color:%23ffffff” google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css=”.vc_custom_1459865007434{margin-bottom: 19px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][button type=”rd_3d_bt” size=”smallmedium_rd_bt” use_icon=”yes” icon_color=”#ffffff” t_color=”#ffffff” b_color=”#91c84a” t_hover_color=”#ffffff” b_hover_color=”#45cdfe” radius=”3″ url=”https://caracentre.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/LSP-Contact-Details.pdf” target=”yes” position=”ta_right” icon=”wb-download”]DOWNLOAD SIDP CONTACT LIST[/button][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full-width-section” css=”.vc_custom_1459865295588{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 115px !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;background-color: #22d6c4 !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}” font_color=”#ffffff”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT THE INCLUSIVE COMMUNITIES COORDINATOR” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:30|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” el_class=”width-800″ css=”.vc_custom_1459865304667{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}”][double_button f_b_text=”CONACT US” f_url=”https://caracentre.ie/contact-us/” f_t_color=”#a1b1bc” f_b_color=”#ffffff” f_t_hover_color=”#ffffff” f_b_hover_color=”#21c2f8″ f_animation=”rda_bounceInLeft” s_b_text=”OTHER CARA PROJECTS” s_url=”https://caracentre.ie#projects” s_t_color=”#ffffff” s_b_color=”#2c3e50″ s_t_hover_color=”#ffffff” s_animation=”rda_bounceInRight” mb=”45″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
