This appointment was shared with those who attended the coaches meeting on 27th October. The purpose of the role is explained in the extract from the report to the EKF Board below.

Extract from Performance Director’s report the August EKF Board:

In order to really increase our reach and ultimately participation there is a need to establish a dedicated role in the form of a disability ambassador. It is therefore our intention to appoint a disability ambassador who will focus on raising awareness and increasing participation as well as developing an EKF para squad. In the interim the Performance Director’s have asked Matthew Handley to look into this, undertaking this role on an interim basis pending a formal recruitment’.

Matthew has already commenced this work and will update the Board in due course. The work will ultimately fall under the responsibility of Board member John De Bono who has the remit for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
