Is My Lifestyle Inclusive?
Yes - My Lifestyle sessions are DSN (Disability Support Network) friendly! The student Activators have completed the Activity Alliance Inclusive Activity Training and are on hand to help adapt sessions and cater for your needs. Just let them know if you require adjustments and they will accommodate wherever possible. The sports facilities where the sessions are held are all fully accessible.
My Lifestyle also offer Inclusive Sport Events throughout the year. Keep up-to-date on the events section of the Loughborough Sport website to find out about future events. Some highlights in 2019/20 were the Inclusive Sport Festival, UV Boccia and a friendly My Lifestyle v SSEHS Wheelchair Basketball game! Next year there will be even more inclusive sport integrated into the My Lifestyle programme.
