Happy 2014!

2013 was a fantastic year for Signpost Inclusion which saw us make many changes and improvements to our service. We moved into new offices, started delivering lots of different activities, employed our first new member of staff, increased our amount of volunteers, worked with lot more families and won some funding from both Children in Need and Big Lottery. 2014 promises to be another exciting, challenging and rewarding year! Here is a flavour of what is to come over the next few months…

  • Look out very soon for an exciting opportunity for siblings when our new SIBS group gets under way. We have finally secured the funding to launch this group and we will have more news very soon.
  • We have plans to work more with the Ackers Adventure centre as this proved to be very successful in 2013
  • The Renewal Centre will also be undergoing changes this year, with a remodelling of the activity rooms and more green spaces at the front entrance.
  • The Signpost Dads will be getting together to organise some sporting and social events, that will also help to raise much needed funds
  • Signpost Inclusion will be three years old this year and we are hoping to host a birthday celebration event
  • Signpost Inclusion Football FUNdraiser – See below for details

Sporting Opportunities – 

Signpost Inclusion Football FUNdraiser – The sporting Gods did not bestow much talent upon me when it comes to the beautiful game, however this does not stop me trying! We thought it would fun to get together a Signpost Inclusion football team to play an 11 a side game later in the year. The aim is to have some fun, raise some funds for Signpost Inclusion and maybe even get a bit fitter!  We have a couple of very qualified local coaches willing to give us the benefit of their expertise so if you are interested in playing a few five a side games to start with with the idea of playing an 11 a side around September, let me know at tonyibbotson@signpostinclusion.org.uk

The Warwickshire Bears (wheelchair basketball team) are applying for funding to offer 6 weeks of free wheelchair basketball sessions to everyone aged between 11-25 years old (inclusive sessions). Sessions are weekly and last for an hour. This will be between April 2014- September 2014, and will hopefully take place at North Solihull Sports Centre. There will be opportunities to develop skills, meet new people or just have a go! If you are interested then please contact Laura Hart on 0121 704 8075 or 07795317483. Groups of people or individuals are all welcome.
