Fusion Awards 2015: Getting the people we support healthy
About 3 years ago Jessica Barker went to a forum for getting adults with learning difficulties into sport. Jessica was so impressed with what she saw that she became a ‘Sport Maker’. By signing up for the training, Jessica registered the company’s interest with the local council and Active Ellesmere (Leicestershire & Rutland’s support structure for disability sport, physical activity and physical education) as well as the LRSA (Leicestershire and Rutland Sports Association). She was very keen to find out ways in which we could help the people we support to be more active and in doing so become healthier.
