People with learning disabilities sometimes feel UNCOMFORTABLE about joining non-disabled clubs.
Lots can be done to make things better like...

  • Make sure you're fit enough.

  • Ask your support worker to help you join a club.

  • Say you want to join a non-disabled club - ask for yoga, badminton or something you want to do.

  • Find a support worker who wants to do sport with you.

  • If the person does not know how to be with a people with learning disability, tell them what you need.

  • Tell them how to talk to you so you can understand and take part.

  • Find other people to go with you so you don't feel alone.

By supporting people to use leisure centre's, centre staff can really help people with learning disabilities get involved!
