To purchase roll-out mats to enable us to deliver coaching in the sport to all SEND pupils, both in-house and on an outreach basis.

by Cherry Judo Club in Lincoln, England, United Kingdom

JESP initiative stems from recognition of the unique challenges faced by SEND pupils in the Lincoln area due to lack of facilities. Using the transformative power of judo as a tool for empowerment and inclusion. We believe that every person regardless of abilities or disabilities deserves to be able to access and participate in enriching physical activities and feel valued and included. Therefore, we are looking to not only increase facilities at the club, but also to be able to use those facilities on an outreach basis, taking judo to SEND schools and provisions.

The goal is to have the required equipment to enable us to deliver coaching in the sport to all SEND pupils, both in-house and on an outreach basis. Funding is required to purchase roll out mats to enable the safe participation in the sport at outreach venues. We will be the first judo club in the area to offer such an inclusive training opportunity .

Why are we best placed to deliver?

Our organisation is uniquely positioned to deliver this project with utmost excellence. With our coaches holding advanced coaching qualifications, we guarantee unrivalled expertise and guidance. Our commitment to organising exceptional events like Masterclasses and Officials courses showcases our dedication to fostering growth and improvement. As 1 of 3 UK clubs who pioneered the Kanji awards initiative, we passionately provide young children with the opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge. We already run an adaptive judo training session which includes pupils with SEND, ASD, ADHD, visual impairment and Down's Syndrome. We now want to expand on this further, taking the benefits of Judo to those who cannot get to us.
