Merseyside Youth Sport Trust held a conference at Greenbank Sports Academy

Merseyside Youth Sport Trust held a conference at Greenbank Sports Academy entitled Step Into Sport to bring together young disabled leaders and non disabled leaders who want to provide more opportunities for young disabled people in sport, and really develop their skills as leaders and role models.

Conference organiser and inclusion lead Jon White, from Clare Mount College said: “We were delighted to offer young people sessions on creating a welcoming environment in their leadership sessions. Our athlete role model was Rio 2016 Paralympic footballer Ollie Nugent from Irby, Wirral who spoke about the power of sport to change lives. We were delighted with the high quality of the people delivering the workshops. Palmerston School’s young people inspired us all and we hope the young people have seen the value of sport volunteering in improving their CVs ready for university, work or apprenticeships.”
