'Give it a Go...' Success Story D

D is 13 and has cerebral palsy. D loves being outdoors and getting active but her physical disabilities could make this tricky for her; she didn’t use to have many opportunities to get out of the house on an evening or at weekends to mix with other young people her own age, but participating in ‘Give it  a Go…’ has given her plenty of new opportunities.

D is still quite new to the group but has fitted in well, and the other young people have developed an understanding of her mobility needs and collectively decide activities that are suitable and inclusive to all.

D says that since she started ‘Give it a Go…’ she has made new friends in the group, but she has also started chatting to other young people at school that she had not talked to previously. It’s great to have you with us D!
