S.C.A. volunteer care and sport expertise
Sport Care Access is a London, United Kingdom based social enterprise, committed to ensuring children and refugees here and abroad can be helped through the project. Volunteering expertise to other existing services has been a way S.C.A. has contributed in the past and currently. We are continually promoting the plight of refugees in Europe and the United Kingdom through social media, and locating sponsorship in order to carry out a sustainable and effective service has been challenging and is a priority.We launched a 'global initiative', Africa Sport International in 2013,and is currently being developed.
Sport and social care initiatives are able to profoundly change lives, and help better mental health conditions such as PTSD, Depression and Bipolar Disorder, and assist people with physical disabilities positively. Results from previous clinics show that refugees were more relaxed immediately prior to and then after a sport project, talk and a nourishing meal, and if sustained would have a long-term positive effect on the participants. This is what we strive for, to deliver a life-changing and sustainable service to all of the service-users we deliver to.
Cricket and sport, helping children develop & cope
Sport Care Access pilot 'global initiative', Africa Sport International (A.S.I.) is developing gradually. Our record thus far shows work in Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo), Knysna (South Africa) for street-children, and in Paris, Calais and Dunkirk (France) and Brussels (Belgium) for refugees. As a project in its' infancy we are constantly forging ahead,requesting support in order to establish vital cricket/sport projects, talk sessions and guidance in projects for individuals concerned.
We understand that sport plays a significant part in growth development and psychologically impacts the individual in many positive ways. Excellent coping skills are developed,participants become confident, self-assured and begin communicating more effectively. Daily life is impacted positively, and families are happier knowing that members are safe, happy and secure. We thank all supporters who have helped us develop thus far.
We foresee this initiative relaunching in the future.
SPORT AND PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
Sport can play a key role in the lives and communities of people with disabilities, the same as their peers without a disability. However, additional benefits include: Socialization through sport is particularly valuable for people with disabilities as they often remain in the home environment, protected and guarded by their families. Participation in sport creates peer interaction, co-operative relationships and teamwork. Sport can also play a significant role in reducing the focus on the impairment or disability of the person and places the focus on their abilities. This leads to empowerment and greater self-confidence that can be applied to other realms of life, for example employment. Disability sports programmes serve to strengthen participants both mentally and physically, promote rehabilitation, and facilitate a capacity for self-help. Sport can promote the inclusion of girls and women who experience double stigmatization. By involving participants with and without a disability in the same programmes there is increased understanding and sensitivity about one another and it can assist with preventing social exclusion.
Sport presents a very powerful tool for engaging socially vulnerable young people in an organised context and offers an opportunity to work with them.Reaching young people who are socially vulnerable constitutes a first vital step in working with them toward broader developmental and social objectives.
