The Special Olympics committee for Telford & Shropshire is really excited to be bringing together community clubs and groups from across the County to provide more opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

The network will:

  • Provide safe places where people can be active together
  • Ensure everyone can take part no matter what their ability
  • Feed into the national pathway through Special Olympics GB
  • Give people the opportunity to represent their club / group, their County, the West Midlands and even Great Britain!

See the full list of our partners and their activities by viewing the brochure below:

New quality assured groups are added to the brochure on a monthly basis so keep an eye out for updates on the Facebook page, or visit back here again.
