The Inclusion Club would like to welcome a new partner in the shape of Youth Sport Trust International. Since its inception in 1994, the Youth Sport Trust has been the UK’s leading sport development agency, supporting quality physical education and sport for young people. They have taken this expertise into the international domain in recent years.

Our services

We can provide countries with experts in inclusion and facilitation to:

  • provide policy support and review;
  • share good practice through key note speakers and workshops at seminars;
  • review and share of best practice in using sport to help support disadvantaged young people—to increase participation in sport;
  • the use of sport to improve attainment, behaviour and life skills;
  • create bespoke resources to address current needs;
  • train and support in-country practitioners and trainers;
  • develop competition frameworks that include all young people.

Our inclusive physical activity and sport agenda is led by our newly-updated TOP Sportsability programme, specifically adapted for use in international settings. TOP Sportsability training consists of:
