National Disability Strategic Action Plan

To be part of Disability Access Day we are focusing on our National Disability Strategic Action Plan 2017 – 2021 (NDSAP) which is launched today, publicly for the first time having been updated following on from previous 2015-2017 plan.

The purpose of the NDSAP is to provide the sport with clear direction which all of the key organisations and individuals can buy in to, progress and be measured by. Established from the previous plan which ends March 2017, which was drafted following input of fifteen organisations which were represented on the Disability Steering Group.

The purpose of the NDSAP is to provide the sport with clear direction which all of the key organisations and individuals can buy in to, progress and be measured by. Established from the previous plan which ends March 2017, which was drafted following input of fifteen organisations which were represented to the first Disability Steering Group. The group was appointed to oversee the implementation of the strategic actions. We have seen continuing focus on developing the sport of bowls to become truly inclusive across all of the various facets be that competition, grass roots participation, coaching or funding support.

The aforementioned Disability Steering Group compromises Paul Brown (Chair – Disability Bowls England), Paul Humphreys (BDA), Alistair Hollis (Bowls England), Stephen Rodwell (EIBA), Jess Cook (English Federation of Disability Sport), Jamie Chestney (AeroBowls UK) and Mo Monkton. Each individual is responsible for overseeing an area of the Strategic Plan and ensuring the relevant actions are delivered as agreed. Further to this, a number of the Steering Group members are responsible for communicating the progress of the NDSAP throughout their networks to partner associations, clubs, coaches and volunteers to ensure the whole sport is fully briefed on the impact the NDSAP is having.
