Leicester Tigers Foundation SEND Schools Programme
The Leicester Tigers Foundation aims to ensure that sporting opportunities continue to be available to those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) within Leicestershire and Rutland.
Thanks to a funding agreement with Comic Relief, we provide all types of rugby delivery supporting adults and children who have special educational needs or a disability.
Tailored to meet the needs of the class, our programmes can:
- Provide specialist SEND activities for groups to get involved in
- Provide assemblies for mainstream schools with the aim of challenging perceptions of disabilities in sport
- Help raise awareness and the profile of disability sport within the community
- Introduce groups to local opportunities such as Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby Team
How to get involved
If you’d like us to get involved within your community, school or group to help increase participation, raise awareness and the support for disability sport, you can get in touch with our community team, email [email protected] or call 07734 964563 to book in any sessions.
