This scenario provides sports clubs and organisations with guidance on how to effectively include deaf and disabled young people.
It outlines the responsibilities of clubs and organisations to enable all children (including deaf and disabled children) to take part in their activities and the steps that can be put in place to enable this to happen.
It also outlines why disabled young people are more vulnerable to abuse than many of their peers and provides discussion points for your organisation to think about and follow up on within your setting.
