NUSU are holding an Inclusive Sport Week campaign for NU staff and students. This is to promote disability and inclusive sport on campus and celebrate that sport is for everyone! Through the week there will be:
Casual sport sessions taking place in Boccia, Goalball, Sitting Volleyball and Visually Impaired Cricket.
Sessions from the Activity Alliance to teach our clubs how to provide inclusive training sessions for those with additional needs.
A talk on mental health in sport from Clarke and Carrie Carlisle.
Posters celebrating the diversity of our student athletes and much more!
Join us for an engaging and entertaining talk with Q & A by Francesca Martinez as part of the NU DIG celebration of diversity for International Day of People with Disabilities. Francesca is a wobbly comedian, writer, speaker and activist (she has mild cerebral palsy, but much prefers the word ‘wobbly’). She has guested on Channel 4 News, BBC2’s Newsnight, BBC1’s Today’s Politics, and was voted most popular guest on BBC3’s Free Speech. Her recent debut on BBC1’s Question Time was described as the show’s “best ever moment” and went viral with 11 million views in the first week alone.
This event is free and open to all Newcastle University staff and students, spaces are limited. Registration required by 27th November 2019
