Inclusive Sport

We take a proactive approach to welfare in sport and provides a number of initiatives to support our students and increase inclusivity. 

Working closely with our sports clubs, we provide training and support to Club Welfare Officers, encourage increased inclusivity through our Earn Your Stripes initiative, and pledge our support as an organisation to mental health in sport.  We are proud Associate members of the English Federation of Disability Sport

 

The Disability Sports Programme

Inclusive Newcastle includes programmes and initiatives aimed to increase engagement with sport, remove barriers and offer support to all students.  This includes our disability sports programme, designed to help students keep active, have some fun and enjoy healthy competition.  The choice is yours. Participate with one of our 66 sports clubs on campus, play weekly social sport in our participation programme, attend NCL Sports Centre gym or get involved with one of our community sports clubs.

Earn Your Stripes

Getting involved is easy. We have an Earn Your Stripes programme which accredits your club with a level of inclusivity. You can achieve bronze, silver and gold stripes. With this you must apply and be able to meet the criteria of providing inclusive opportunities. To supplment this, we will give you additional funding support to fulfil your inclusivity. We highly reccomend all clubs getting involved. Contact us with any questions:
