Wigan Warriors have today linked up with The National Association of Disabled Supporters (NADS) to launch a unique initiative in collaboration with the Wigan Learning Disability Partnership Board and Wigan Athletic Football Club. The Never Watch Alone Initiative will enable supporters with a learning disability to attend matches alongside their fellow supporters.
Through a network of buddies, the Never Watch Alone Initiative will enable those supporters with a learning disability to go to games not with a professional carer but a friend, a like-minded fan who shares their passion as well as the camaraderie and socialising before and after the game.
Buddies don’t need experience – ongoing guidance, support and responsibility will be handled by the professionals overseeing the initiative - just 18 years or older and a genuine passion for their sport. The aim of the project is to enable people with learning disabilities to lead full and purposeful lives in their communities and to develop a range of friendships, activities and relationships.
