One of the aims of the JSAD is to raise awareness of the everyday obstacles that people with disabilities have to overcome. This, of course, helps able-bodied people to better understand the difficulties involved.
The Stonehage Fleming Wheelchair Basketball Outreach Programme is organised to do just that and has been incredibly successful.
Once again, the JSAD is fortunate to have been able to secure the services of Gordon Perry to lead the 2019 programme. Gordon is a regular and familiar face in Jersey now, and brings with him much
experience of wheelchair basketball, having represented Great Britain at Paralympic level. He was also the national development manager for the sport for over 20 years, before launching his latest
adventure, the Gordon Perry Wheelchair Basketball Experience.
The 2019 programme sees Gordon assisted by a great team of volunteers from the Jersey Wheelers and RBC Maples, and the experience will be shared by up to 500 students spanning five schools between Monday 11th November and Friday 15th November.
