Since 2013, the CAFE Week of Action has provided like-minded people and organisations with the ideal opportunity to shine a spotlight on disability, to reaffirm their commitments to an inclusive game and to demonstrate how valued disabled people are within it.
The CAFE Week of Action is the largest campaign of its kind, celebrating inclusion in the game that we love and working towards ensuring that disabled people can take their rightful places amongst their peers within sport - from the grassroots to the boardrooms - as spectators, players, coaches, administrators, volunteers, and decision makers.
This campaign, celebrated under the banner of #TotalAccess, belongs to you, our key stakeholders – disabled fans and their groups, clubs, leagues and the national associations. This is a great opportunity to present a positive story of inclusion and access.
The CAFE Week of Action is traditionally held over two weekends to allow for as many clubs as possible to have the opportunity to host events at a home match during this time. Following feedback from previous years, we have taken the decision to extend this season’s campaign into the international break, giving national associations the chance to hold events at national team matches.
We encourage you to think of innovative ways to join the CAFE Week of Action. Previous activities have included:
#TotalAccess is not just a motto – it is what the game should be aspiring to achieve.
CAFE is pleased to promote and celebrate the activities and initiatives who share our belief in #TotalAccess. We can also help and advise you on any events and projects you may be planning and we will be pleased to share them widely amongst our networks to help further raise awareness.
Live sport can change the lives of many disabled people and create memories that will last forever. We encourage you to join us in celebrating access and inclusion for all disabled people during this season’s CAFE Week of Action between 8-24 March.
