Action for Kids
Action for Kids is a national charity that provides opportunities for disabled children and young people to lead lives more like others their age. Our mission is to give as many young people with disabilities as possible the opportunity to work or volunteer in their community.
Disability Sports Coach
We will be showcasing our award-winning Community Club programme and providing information about how disabled people and their families can join their local sports club in London.
Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. If you’re interested in signing up to run at an existing parkrun event, or you fancy starting an event where you live, come and see us at Parallel London.
Super Sensory Field events
Athletes who have flexed their sensory muscles during the Super Sensory 1km track event can be tempted to continue to explore their abilities with our Super Sensory Field events. The Super Sensory Field events, hosted by Parallel Ambassador Jo Grace, will begin at 1:30pm in The Sensory Project's tent in the Personal Development Zone of the Free family festival and be available for you to dip into until the Festival closes at 4pm. Inside The Sensory Project's tent you will find a wealth of simple sensory experiences to pit your sensory abilities against. Each experience will be offered to you by a volunteer who has particular insight into the sensory system they are stimulating. Experiences can be simply encountered and enjoyed as an exercise in pure sensory engagement or you can choose to extend the experience by taking on one of the challenges found on the sensory menu cards on each table. There will be something for everyone to explore and The Sensory Project's volunteer team cannot wait to meet you!
