‘My Ability Programme’ is a project run by Reading Community Trust, working with a number of Special Educational Needs (SEN) schools and organisations in the Berkshire catchment. The programme works with special schools, delivering school coaching and lunch time clubs, plus school tournaments at the Reading Football Club Dome, throughout the year.
We offer the SEN schools the chance to complete in a number of SEN tournaments throughout the year which are hosted in the Reading Football Club training dome, at the Madejski Stadium.
Alongside this, our coaches work with SEN students in local colleges delivering a sports programme with a number of educational workshops, including weekly deaf friendly sessions at Piggott School in Wargrave.

EFL Grassroots Clubs Programme
Also, a part of the programme funded by the EFLT and Wembley fund we offer the chance for grassroots clubs to participate in a programme to help them become more inclusive. This initiative see’s Reading FC coaches go in and work with local clubs by working with alongside their coaches for 10 weeks in delivering inclusive sessions.
In addition to the 10 weeks the Trust also runs an coaching disabled footballers course each year in partnership with the Berks & Bucks FA to help the coaches gain more experience and a qualification.
As part of the programme the Trust will work with the nearest SEN school/unit to promote the grassroots club session through this initiative the Trust has helped generate 4 new inclusive sessions and 3 new clubs in the 2016/17 season.
In addition Reading FC Community Trust also run the following PAN disability sessions around Wokingham, Slough and Reading.
