The South London Special League

South London Special League is a unique award-winning registered charity that provides opportunities for disabled people in South London, male and female, to improve their lives through participation in competitive sport  on a regular basis. By achieving this aim, disabled players can increase their opportunities to meet new people, socialise, and gain new experiences. All of these contribute towards their improved health and well-being, physical fitness, heightened self esteem, raised aspirations and indeed overall happiness.

The organisation was launched in 2004 to provide a competitive football league for young disabled people and in so doing to break down the social and environmental barriers to inclusion. This  successful formula has been used to open up a wider range of sports to our diverse disabled community of all ages.

Since its conception over five thousand disabled players have experienced the fun and friendship of sport through the South London Special League. The project has been managed by Sharon Brokenshire, MBE, and has received a variety of awards for excellence that demonstrate the level of commitment of members of staff and the management committee.

    Hi There. My name is David Smith from a charity called Cricket for Change.

    I am starting up a new Disability programme called Hit the Top Heroes. These 5 Heroes will all have a disability and will be working along side myself to run 6 big festivals at iconic events across London to raise awareness to parents and teachers as to the affect sport has disabled young people. As well as these festivals, we will be running a couple of training days for parents and teachers, as well as running 18 introductory programmes within special or mainstream schools offering six weeks engagement for young people with a disability involving 12 young people in each programme.

    I have literally just started this programme so I was wondering whether you have any festivals/events coming up in the near future. If so I was wondering whether myself and the heroes could come along, see what amazing work you do, and possibly show some of the stuff that we do.

    And I would love it for you guys to do the same when we run our festivals, forming a partnership together. I know this is quite a brief overview of our programme but I want to get the ball rolling as soon as possible.

    It would be great if you could get back to me with your thoughts and hopefully we can go from there.

    Really appreciate your time- take care and thank you very much.

    Congratulations for 10+ years of Sharon’s founding and dedication to SLSL.
    Well done to everyone involved including our funders. The latest spread in the local paper (see link below), was also lovely. It is my pleasure to be associated with this very worthwhile and continually needed project. Thanks be to God.
