Foundation of Light has teamed up with the University of Sunderland to launch a new female disability programme. Open to adults with a wide range of physical and learning needs, sessions focus on enjoying sport, with opportunities for those who wish to progress into local leagues. Supported by Premier League Girls Football, the weekly programme starts on the Wednesday 3rd October 2018 (2pm-3pm) at the Beacon of Light (SR5 1SN) and is delivered by the Foundation's qualified and experienced disability coaches.
