Something to explain what this does

Special Olympics

The Special Olympics being held this week in Abu Dhabi and Dubai showcases to the world that People of Determination can achieve things. Our UAE team went to support the United Arab Emirates, British and Canadian teams at the badminton, basketball, athletics and bocca events.

Direct Access had delivered a presentation on accessibility to the Special Olympics delivery team in 2018. We have worked extensively in the sporting sector. Director Steven Mifsud was a former advisor to the United Kingdom’s Football Association and clients range from racecourses, football stadiums and sport governing bodies such as Sport Wales.

Sport provides a wide range of opportunities for People of Determination ranging from physical improvements such as stronger muscles, enhanced cardiovascular aerobic levels and improved motor skills. Psychologically sport helps to develop self-esteem and team working through achieving aims.
