All of our projects rely on the support of the people in our community. Ian is one of our volunteer enablers for our Unified Rugby Team – the Strathie Clan. The Strathie Clan is a team for adults with additional support needs, and we also have a youth version for young people in S1-S6 called our youth unified rugby team.
Ian’s role as an enabler is to get the players playing rugby. It’s about getting the players involved in the game, getting the ball into their hands and getting them running round the park and scoring tries. Both teams train weekly on a Wednesday and we also arrange matches with other Clan’s throughout Scotland.
We are looking for more enablers to help support both programmes. Ideally you would have a little knowledge of rugby but it’s not essential. The players are supported by their peers so for the Strathie Clan we are looking for adults, for the youth unified rugby team we are looking for players in S1-S6.

If you think this is something you would like to help with we would love to hear from you. Drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us through our social media pages. We look forward to hearing from you!
