Have your say

DISABLED young adults have a new sports club to join up to.

Dis-Play has been set up by Rishi Ghosh who felt there was a big gap in the activities provided for people aged 16 and over who are disabled or who have additional needs.

The first meeting is on Wednesday at Havelock Community Centre, Fawcett Road, Southsea, from 7.30pm.

There will be lots of different activities and sports for people to try out.

Mr Ghosh said: ‘I have spoken to many parents with young adults with disabilities and additional needs and they tell me there are no clubs for them and they sometimes don’t go out at all in a week.

‘So I am very much hoping this can fill a much needed gap. I have also spoken to some young adults directly with disabilities who are excited to come along.’

The club costs £2. Carers are welcome.
