MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIRMAN SANDY RIACH

“The Scottish Disabled Supports Association has been awarded Charitable Status by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.

Being awarded Charitable Status means that our organisation can apply for funds not otherwise available to non-charitable groups. Over the past few years the work carried out by the SDSA is being increasing acknowledged as valuable to organisations such as the SFA and SPFL member Clubs. This also included consultation with Government and the Commonwealth Games in supporting the accessible requirements of spectators. This all comes at a cost for attending meetings, accommodation and other expenses which have come from members own pockets.

The funding that can be applied for could be for training, equipment, travel and support for members who have been asked to give advice and support to clubs. This has happened recently and more often and other sports including athletics.”
