Deafblind charity hits hardest to reach
We're investing in Sense, the national deafblind charity, to help get more people active in England.
Our £424,958 investment will see Sense continue to develop a wide range of programmes through its Sporting SenseOpen in a new window project.
More than 300,000 people with dual sensory loss in England are met with a number of barriers to take part in activity each day.
Thanks to our funding, Sense will be able to tackle these barriers to provide appropriate, safe and accessible sport and exercise opportunities for many disabled people.
This grant will enable more deafblind people to experience the benefits that sport provides
Ian Carpenter, national sport manager, Sense
Sense’s national sport manager, Ian Carpenter, said: "We know from our experience supporting people with deafblindness that many encounter barriers to access sport. This grant from Sport England will enable more deafblind people to experience the benefits that sport provides.
"We’ll be working in partnership with other organisations supporting them to develop their own programmes."
