The All Move project will bring together young people of all abilities on an equal level, to learn new skills and try out different physical activities as a team. The project will be happening all over England and Wales.
Our vision is to mobilise people with a learning disability, our supporters, partners and the general public so that people with a learning disability are more visible and included in their communities.
Mencap are enormously proud to have been named the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year. This is an incredible opportunity for us to kick-start a movement of change and take a huge step towards greater inclusion for people with a learning disability.
Why All Move
Through this partnership we will be using sport and physical activity to bring young people of all backgrounds and abilities together. In partnership with schools across the country we will deliver All Move, an inclusive project for children with and without a learning disability, aged 11-16. The project will bring together young people of all abilities on an equal level, to learn new skills and try out different physical activities as a team.
How it works
In recognition of the marathon, the challenge is 26 hours long – a virtual marathon! Inclusive teams decide how they want to complete the 26 hours over the school year and which sports and physical activities they will do. They will get a medal when they reach the finish line
