Disability programme

Funded by

Our National Governing Body, England Boxing and IMAS teamed up to encourage education and training in this field. This was a great initiative, that has resulted in high levels of training. Thankfully we were funded by Sport England to then develop our disability programme.

The training that IMAS provided has allowed staff to gain valuable CPD in the area of coaching individuals with disabilities.

Our highly successful mental wellbeing programme, Mind Fit, has laid the foundations for us to develop a physical disability programme. The programme will run throughout 2020 and our staff and volunteers have undergone relevant training with IMAS, International Mixed Ability of Sport, to prepare them for the programme.

If you know of individuals or organisations who would benefit from this free programme, please contact Programme Manager Leah Harris, by emailing leah@pbba.co.uk
