Weeks of Action

We're celebrating access and inclusion this weekend

11 March 2020

We are pleased to be supporting the 2020 Level Playing Field (LPF) Weeks of Action at this weekend's home match against Eastleigh.

A number of our stewards, ticket office staff and players will be wearing special t-shirts to help promote this annual initiative, now in its 16th year, which aims to celebrate access and inclusion for disabled sports fans across England and Wales.

Disabled people constitute the largest minority group at around 15%-20% of the population and this number is increasing year on year. Naturally, a large number of disabled people are football fans too and we are pleased to take this opportunity to thank our own disabled fans for their continued loyalty and dedication to our club.

This year we are celebrating the matchday experience for disabled fans. We want to shine a light on the positives of attending a matchday at Meadow Lane and in turn help remove barriers and promote a culture of accessibility and inclusiveness within sport.

A spokesperson for our Disabled Supporters Association said: "NCDSA aids supporters with both visible and hidden disabilities by working alongside the club to enhance their matchday experience.

"Our objective is to communicate and co-ordinate the views, ideas and concerns of our fellow disabled Notts supporters to the club with the aim of providing access for all to Meadow Lane.

"If you are, or know of a supporter with a disability, or if you're a family member or carer who would like to help bring positive change to our club, please email NCDSA@outlook.com or the club's Supporter Liaison Officer alice.kelk@nottscountyfc.co.uk.

"We hold regular meetings with the club and have already created visible changes over the years.

"Come and work with us so we can continue to do more for our fellow supporters."
