THE Turning Tides Project (TTTP) in Crediton is currently running football training sessions in the sports hall at the Queen Elizabeth’s School’s Barnfield campus on Mondays, from 6pm to 7pm.

The team is called The Turning Tides Wanderers and is part of the Turning Tides equal access to sports #Inclusive approach.

The training sessions are run by qualified lead coach, Ben Pidgeon and qualified assistant coach, Stuart Raymont.

The football kit for the team was designed by TTTP’s Tuesday group Making Waves and Dominic Palfreman of TTTP worked closely with the makers of the kit, over the course of two months, to get the design right. The colours of the "fade" design kit were chosen by the team.

TTTP received some TAP funding to purchase both the football kit and the shorts worn by their #inclusive skittles team.

The football team is sponsored by Stapletons chartered certified accountants of Crediton who said: "We are delighted to be sponsoring The Turning Tides Project and to be supporting their new football team.

"The kit looks fantastic and we hope that it will boost the team spirit."

The team is also affiliated with Crediton Youth Football Club who have offered support and the use of their pitches.

The Turning Tides Project believe that everyone has the right of equal access to music, the arts and life - the aim is to make this a reality for people with "learning disability" or "autism" labels in Devon.

Other sessions run by The Turning Tides Project include: music art and dance, pub jams, accessible music, instruments and song writing as well as band practices.

The Turning Tides Project is a Community Interest Company and any profit generated is re-invested in the project. In everything they do, TTTP seeks to demonstrate a Social Model approach.
