Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

BATTC received Young Carers accreditation

Bishop Auckland Table Tennis Club received Young Carers accreditation from Family Action, The Bridge Young Carers, at their celebration event last month. In recognition of their commitment to supporting young carers through table tennis, and their volunteering pathway.

New and current members with caring responsibilities will register with the Young Carer Lead and receive additional help and support, to work around their additional needs. Because young carers may have additional responsibilities, but they are young people first and deserve the same rights and opportunities as every other young table tennis player. This confidential service sees Bishop Auckland Table Tennis Club at the forefront of tackling sporting inequalities, enhanced by our recent registration with Max Cards! An organisation which provides discounts for looked after children, and families with disabled children, meaning young carers and their families could have the opportunity to play table tennis, at a discounted rate.
