Sports&Diabetes Tackling Diabetes with Sport
project start date: 01.01.2020
project end date: 30.06.2022. (extended to 31.12.2022.)
The main objective of this project, coherently with the mission of the Multisport clubs and other partners involved, is to ENCOURAGE SOCIAL INCLUSION AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IN SPORT in harmony with the Council Recommendation on health-enhancing physical activity and in line with the EU Physical Activity Guidelines.
Sport has the ability to transcend cultural and social barriers, the physical, social and economic benefits making it an excellent tool for fostering social inclusion.
In our project the stress is put on enabling children with diabetes to do sport by educating all stakeholders how to handle risk concerning diabetes and reduce fears that lead to exclusion of children with diabetes. A lot of children stop doing sports when they are diagnosed due to various reasons. Predominantly, it is either the fear of the parents or the lack of knowledge of coaches and teacher on how to handle children with diabetes.
The project aims to create a comprehensive handbook that quickly educates all stakeholders and enables all children with diabetes to do or continue sport activities. The project stands for the equal access to sport for all, through the inclusion of young persons with diabetes into sport clubs, with the main goal of showing to everyone that they are as capable of participating in all sport activities and reaching the standards and goals that every other person who doesn’t have diabetes can achieve.
