On August 17th 2010 the team organised a workshop themed to address the issues you raised regarding accessible leisure activities. During the morning speakers from a range of services covered topics such as healthy eating, accessible gyms, etc, and we were also lucky enough to have Helen Holt from Riding for the Disabled and Paul Hunt the Disability Sports Development Officer form the Albion Foundation, West Bromwich Albion Football Club, and Geoff Moore from Aldridge Airport Outdoor Activities Centre who told the group what they could offer. Have a look at their links in the leisure section of this site for more information.

At lunchtime we had a rep from a company called Quest88 who brought all their accessible cycles for everyone to try. Well – what a laugh we had!!! See the picture of Lateefa and Sam trying out a tandem and David trialling a bike you ‘pedalled’ using your arms.

In the afternoon we had a motivational speaker called Action Jackson who was as mad as a hatter and really funny. His ‘Mr T’ from the A team impression was spot on. Those of you were there will hopefully still be flushing your past and moving on after unanimously rating it 10/10!!! Those of you who weren’t there missed a great session.

Watch this space for a return visit if we can get funding!!!

Hi, really sorry about this, I will forward your comments to our web developer. It is compatible with the most common browsers, I know mozilla firefox is a free download and it works fine with that, but thanks for letting us know. We set up the site on a very limited budget as we are an NHS team, with no funding for such things! We actually won an award from the Queens Nursing Institute fund for innovation to build it but this was only a small amount. However we are looking at being able to bring it ‘in-house’ so the trust Communications team can maintain it…. please be patient with us and watch this space
Kind Regards
