Young people with disabilities in Norwich benefit from Lord's Taverners Minibus

Representatives of the Lord’s Taverners were in Norwich on Monday 10 November to present a new wheelchair accessible minibus to staff and young people at Parkside School.

Parkside School is a school for 149 children under 18 years old with a wide range of disabilities, including autism, limited hearing or vision, epilepsy, physical disability and communication disorders. The school strives to ensure that each individual child reaches their full potential, whether this is through communication skills, interaction with the local community or independence skills.

The new 16-seat minibus from the Lord’s Taverners, costing £53,000, will enable the Parkside pupils to lead more independent lives and develop life skills by providing vital accessible transportation.

Paul Robin, chief executive of the Lord’s Taverners, said: “The Lord's Taverners believes that sport and recreation are essential for all young people, regardless of ability or background. This minibus will help the Parkside pupils to get out and enjoy new places and experiences. We are proud to support the staff, parents and young people of Parkside School.”
