SEND Active is a Community Interest Company (CIC) providing inclusive sport, physical activity & leadership opportunities for special schools across Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire.
The Wasps SEND programme aims to encourage more people with disabilities to take up rugby through a variety of programmes, with their ‘Project Rugby’ strand comprising a 12 week rugby and sports coaching programme – focused on developing mixed ability rugby teams.
Wasps’ SEND work also includes a special school programme called ‘Pick It Up’, which was rolled out in 15 schools last season and ‘Playing Advantage’ – a weekly Sunday session held at King Henry’s School in Coventry.
Wasps Community are currently working with education providers and local disability groups to get more people involved. The club has been working with Hinckley and Broadstreet rugby clubs and their mixed ability teams and is helping Old Leamingtonians to establish their own mixed ability team.
