Leadership, Coaching & Volunteering


As a partner of the Activity Alliance, SASP are supporting clubs, schools and college access the Inclusive Activity Programme. Launched in 2018, the Inclusive Activity Programme, build on the successful delivery of its predecessor, the Sainsbury's Inclusive Community Training. It will equip you with the skills to engage disabled people and people with long term health conditions more effectively in activities. Funded by Sport England's National Lottery, Activity Alliance is working with UK Coaching over three years.

To book a closed course for your organisation, or to enquire about dates for our open courses, please contact Carly Ridgwell.


SASP are also passionate about the development of leadership skills in young people (including those with SEND), a vision which is supported by the Youth Sport Trust. We work in partnership with the Lead Inclusion School (Westfield Academy), to ensure leadership skills are developed via school programmes including 'Step into Sport' and 'Active 30'. This is part of the Inclusion 2020 initiativean initiative that sits within the Department for Education SEND Inclusion in PE, School Sport and Physical Activity grant. Along with their personal development, the new skills will support the Young Leaders develop more opportunities for all pupils (including those with SEND) to engage in school sports activities (clubs) and competition.

For more information on Inclusion 2020, and the leadership opportunities which sit within this initiative, please visit the website.

Volunteers have always played a vital part in the sport and physical activity sector. Without them, most activity simply wouldn't happen. Approximately 150,000 Somerset residents volunteer at least once a month, many these in sport and physical activity.

Would you like to volunteer or 'lend a hand' with SASP? If you are interested in volunteering at any of our inclusive or disability sessions, please contact Carly Ridgwell.
