Developing skills and confidence through sports
Staff and the people we support at Affinity Supporting People, created their own football team.
The team was created to help the people we support get involved in local activities and interact with other individuals within the care services. It was also a great opportunity for individuals to keep fit and develop their footballing skills.
Staff worked closely with the individuals to ensure that training / practices were organised on days that suited them and that they were having fun.
The team has joined a football league which has been designed for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, and mental health, allowing people to interact with others at a similar skills level and make new friends.
