Sports Buddy Sutton will enable people with mild to moderate disabilities or those with learning difficulties and/or autism to undertake mainstream sports activities by the help of a volunteer ‘buddy’.

Our volunteers will support people with disabilities to take part in sport and physical activities in a fun, flexible and motivating way, encouraging choice and independence.
