The inaugural Leicester Inclusive Futures Regional Leadership camp was held on Friday 11th March. The leadership camp saw 65 young leaders from across Leicestershire attend a day inclusive sport training supported by Paralympian and Inclusive Futures Athlete Ambassador Kate Grey.
Led by John Duggan, Mark Beeby & Wayne Gudgeon and supported by 5 Young Ambassadors, the regional camp delivered a multitude of workshops which challenged the young volunteers thinking, allowed them to work with other likeminded people and supported their development as leaders, coaches, volunteers and officials.
The Inclusive Futures programme is a Youth Sport Trust initiative, funded by the Spirit of 2012, which focuses on increasing the participation and provisions of sports volunteers, regardless of age, ability, disability, gender, background or experience. The programme looks to support the development of leaders and volunteers through continual support, CPD opportunities and placements within a community and after-school setting.
