See My Voice Parasports Festival

Celebrate the Commonwealth Games with See My Voice’s Parasports Festival!

As part of the See My Voice programme, British Blind Sport, UK Deaf Sport and Sport Birmingham will host an exciting Parasports Festival. The free event will allow young people with a disability aged 10-20 and their families to try a variety of sports featured at the Commonwealth Games in a welcoming environment and help them feel a part of the Birmingham 2022 legacy.

The event  is the perfect opportunity for children and young people with a disability in Birmingham and the surrounding area who have been inspired by the Games to try adapted sports and learn about inclusive opportunities that they can continue to enjoy and participate in after the event. This year's cohort of See My Voice Young Leaders will host the sports sessions, along with inclusive coaches, to help them put their newly formed leadership skills into practice and act as role models for the young people attending.
