Kate visited the Chill Factore in Trafford, to celebrate the launch of Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Can Do Sport programme.

Kate was joined by Leonard Cheshire CEO Neil Heslop and volunteers who were put through their paces by Disability Snowsport UK.

The increased capacity and skills gained through this Can Do project will encourage participants to take-up further volunteering, training, and/or employment opportunities, depending on their age.

The City & Guilds qualification that Can Doers will gain through this project will be an additional item to include on CV’s and further applications for training/employment/volunteering.

Neil Heslop, CEO Leonard Cheshire Disability said: “Today’s activity is indicative of the type of experience we’re trying to offer young disabled people through Can Do Sport, a programme that’s going to be rolling out across the country in the coming months.”

Young disabled individuals aged 10-25, as well as school/college/youth groups/disability sports groups or charities that work with groups of young people with additional needs, are encouraged to contact cando@leonardcheshire.org for more information.
