Disability Sport Wales, in partnership with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council and the Spirit of 2012 Trust, is seeking a dynamic individual to help transform the lives of (disabled) inactive people in the Rhondda Cynon Taf area by helping them to become more active and involved in physical recreation
Disability Sport Wales is the lead organisation for disability sport in Wales. We are committed to supporting the Sector Vision of ‘Uniting a proud sporting Nation’, where every (disabled) person is hooked on sport and physical recreation. Our partner Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council already provide sports to disabled people and share our vision to transform lives and does this by creating choice and opportunity through the provision of high quality community provision, education and the provision of inclusive training and learning opportunities.
The Role: The post holder will develop and support disability sport and physical activity opportunities across the County and co-ordinate the Spirit of 2012’s Get Out Get Active programme (GOGA), benefitting some of the most disadvantaged and inactive (disabled) adults in the Rhondda Cynon Taf area. The project will focus on encouraging more (disabled) adults to take part in activities (including outdoor activities) which will lead to improved health and well-being.
The GOGA programme sees an investment of £4.5 million across the UK to develop, deliver and learn from innovative ways to support inactive people into active recreation. Disability Sport Wales is leading in Wales a uniquely inclusive and dynamic partnership which will see real change in three Welsh Local Authority areas and a further fifteen locations across the UK. Wrexham has been chosen as one of these key localities.
The post will be located at Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, Abercynon, based within the Sport RCT offices.
