The East of Scotland Paralympic Experience Event is scheduled for Friday 18th March 2016 at Forrester/St Augustine's High School, Edinburgh, EH12 9AE.
The event has grown steadily since it was introduced in 2012 by Scottish Disability Sport, in partnership with Lothian Disability Sport and City of Edinburgh Council. The event specifically targets young people with a physical or sensory impairment and is open to pupils from across the East of Scotland, providing the platform to try a variety of sports delivered by exeperienced local club coaches in a friendly and encouraging environment. Last year, the event welcomed 50 young people from across the East of Scotland with 70% engaging with the opportunity for the first time. From the number of new attendess, 59% went on to access further sporting opportunities through club engagement, additional events etc. A report of the event to date can be dowloaded by clicking here.
