About ‘A Level Playing Field’

A Level Playing Field is a new unique partnership project between OnSide, their Youth Zones and Seashell Trust, which aims to support over 1,200 disabled young people, aged 8-25 yr olds.

The project has been launched to address issues of limited facilities or services close to home for families with disabled children. The focus of the project will be for Youth Zones to get disabled young people involved in inclusive sports and recreational activities such as football, badminton, basketball, climbing, dancing and creative activities to increase their experience of independence.

Seashell Trust, a charity specialising in the needs of children and young people with the most complex communication difficulties, will help deliver the project by providing highly specialist training for over 180 volunteers and Youth Zone staff based on its award-winning Children’s Able and Disabled Sport (CADS) programme.
