PACE aims to act as a resource for disabled children and young people in the London Borough of Ealing and the surrounding area, by providing advice and assistance, and organising programmes of physical, educational and other activities, as a means of;
a) Advancing in life and helping those children and young people by developing their skills, capacities and capabilities.
b) Providing sports, recreational and leisure time activities in the interest of social welfare.
In order to meet these objectives, PACE delivers services that;
- provide opportunities for members to complete accredited training courses, such as Community Sports Leadership Awards (CSLA), First Aid, Safeguarding and Deaf Awareness courses.
- provides opportunities for members to complete accredited coaching courses, such as FA level 1 & 2, UK Athletics Level 1, Boccia Leaders Award, Adapting Sport and Physical Activity Award.
- develop skills, knowledge and experience for all members that may lead to employment.
- provide exit routes for members who want to compete in sport at a higher level.
- develop the physical abilities of members, using sport as a form of therapy.
- providing opportunities for disabled people to socialise and access leisure activities with their peers.
- increase participation of disabled people in inclusive physical activity.
PACE would like to see a world where disabled people have the same opportunities as everybody else.
Everybody has a right to live their life as they wish, without being limited by other people’s judgements, prejudices or expectations. PACE would like to see a society that sees and accepts disabled people for who they are, their personalities, qualities, characteristics and things that make them unique, rather than their impairments or condition.
Disabled people have a right to access education and training, providing them with skills, qualifications and experiences, just as much as non-disabled people. PACE would like to see more disabled people being provided with opportunities to develop their skills and lead independent lives.
Disabled people have the right to exercise their choice and control over all the decisions that affect their lives, who they want to see, where they want to go and what they want to do. PACE would like to see a society where disabled people have more control over these decisions, where their opinions are listened to and valued.
