Donna, Chris and Rob are all people with learning disabilities who have been attending Sport For Confidence sessions at Basildon Sporting Village, Essex. As part of the Sports Coach UK, #CoachingCan national campaign, all three tell their story in this short film below.

Sport For Confidence is a social enterprise, based in Essex, which sees health care professionals based within leisure centres to work alongside qualified coaches to provide sporting opportunities to people with and without disabilities.  This unique partnership enables leisure centres to make reasonable adjustments that create truly accessible sport and leisure opportunities.

Sports Coach UK, the country’s technical agency for coaching, has recognised the incredible work being delivered by Sport For Confidence, in Essex and has showcased three participants in this short film, highlighting the personal benefits sport can deliver. The film has been produced in association with a national campaign #CoachingCan, which aims to raise the profile of the impact coaching can have on lives.”
