Dunstable Town FC are delighted to announce that the Club will be working in partnership with the Disability Resource Centre (DRC) to provide a broad range of activities to users of the DRC covering a pan disability spectrum. The Club’s scheme, Improving the Lives of Others, has sought to offer practical help and emotional support for people who want to improve their physical health and mental well-being.
The Club became a Community Benefit Society in July 2021 and has established partnerships with several statutory and voluntary organisations and offers activities and support free of charge to a growing number of people.
The announcement comes just two weeks after the launch of Chums and Crumbs, a partnership with Titan PCN & Stevenage Leisure Limited, providing company, support and activities, for people who would like more contact with other people.
The partnership with the DRC will enable the Club to reach a greater number and a larger cross-section of people than it currently does
Dunstable Town FC Chair, Andrew Madaras said;
“We are hugely excited to be working with Mel, Lynda and all of their colleagues at the DRC. We know there is a demand for the type of group activities that we can provide. It’s been an exciting project to put together. We hope we can do justice and repay some of the faith that the DRC has trusted us with”
Melanie Hawman, CEO of the DRC said;
“We are delighted to have been asked to work with Andrew and his team on some very exciting projects. We both feel our combined strengths and areas of expertise will benefit the local community immensely. Together we can make a real difference to reducing health inequalities, increasing social inclusion and most of all, putting support and friendship at the heart of what we do”
The Club would like to thank Andrzej Juraszek (Central Beds Council) and James Slack (Facility Manager Creasey Park Community Football Centre) for their support and to Martin Foster from the Club’s main sponsor, GMB Beds County Branch for his unwavering support during the Club’s restructure.
