Focused Partner Delivery

We are currently working strategically alongside two National partners to deliver Just bowl to multiple sites and participants. There has been some great work carried out to date and we are really excited with the plans for the future with the following organisations:

Age UK is the country's largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. They believe in a world where everyone can 'love later life' and they work every day to achieve this. They help more than 5 million people every year providing support, companionship and advice for older people who need it most. Our delivery with Age UK began with an initial 7 sites across Kent, engaging over 100 new regular participants over the age of 55 and an additional 53 with a disability. Our partnership with Age UK continues to grow through our HotSpot areas, with focused work across the South East. For an example of some of our work with Age UK, see a video on the media page of a project we delivered in Coventry, through the Inspire & Include fund.

   

Mencap is the voice of learning disability. Everything they do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers.  They work with people with a learning disability to change laws and services, challenge prejudice and directly support thousands of people to live their lives as they choose. Just Bowl was introduced to Mencap through the East Kent Mencap site, the project was so well received that a further 2 sites took up a trial offer in 2015. Following these periods, we have been working with the sport team to extend delivery in to other areas, such as Oxfordshire. Our future plans are for Mencap to deliver nationally in partnership with the Bowls Development Alliance and enable more adults with disabilities to play bowls.
