Start To SMILE

Start To SMILE

Start to SMILE is our sport delivery arm which started as a Sport England Inclusive Sport Funded project. We aim to create more opportunities for disabled people to take part in sport. We cover all four counties of the North East - delivering sessions in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham and Tees Valley.

Sports that we deliver include; athletics, basketball, boccia, cricket, dodgeball, kurling, table cricket, tennis, volleyball and sensory activities. All of which can be adapted and tailored to your requirements.

The Start to SMILE programme includes community sessions, friendly competitions, festivals, specific group or organisation sessions.

To find out more about the Start to SMILE programme or to book sessions contact Jenni - jenni@smilethroughsport.com

Community Sessions / Events

We organise community sessions across the region. These sessions are open to all and are ran as drop in, so no booking or commitment is required.

The community sessions are for adults, with a minimum age limit of 14 years. There is a participant fee of £3 per person per session.

Current community sessions are held in Stanley and Gateshead. More information about these sessions can be found on our What's On page

Groups & Organisations

The Start To SMILE programme works with schools, colleges, community groups, day centres, charities, care homes, residential homes and other organisations.

If you hit this criteria and want to try something different for your group or would like sport and physical activity delivery please get in touch.

We can come to you and provide activity at your own venue. All sports and activities are adapted and tailored to suit the needs and requirements of your students or group members.

Start To SMILE aims to provide as many opportunities to take part in sport as possible. If you want to get involved in sport join our community sessions, or get in touch to organise a sport session for your group.
