Opportunity for disabled Nottingham Forest supporters, carers and companions to share matchday experiences

An online meeting with Nottingham Forest Football Club has been set up to share experiences and explore the possibility of setting up a Disabled Supporters Association.

In partnership with Nottingham Forest Football Club, Level Playing Field and the Nottingham Forest Supporters’ Trust, we invite you to an online meeting on January 24th 2022, at 1pm.

This is an opportunity for disabled Nottingham Forest supporters, carers, companions and those supporting disabled people to discuss the matchday experience of disabled fans. The meeting will also explore the possibility of setting up a Disabled Supporters Association (DSA).

A DSA is an independent fan lead group that aims to improve the matchday experience for all disabled supporters.

We welcome the comments and ideas of disabled fans and their carers or companions – of all ages and disabilities.

The meeting will be chaired by Lindsay Knott, Forest fan and Disability Lead for the Nottingham Forest Supporters’ Trust.

Also in attendance will be Scott Paul, Nottingham Forest Head of Ticketing and Supporter Services and Disabled Liaison Officer (DLO) and Liam Bird, Fans Liaison Officer at the sporting disability charity Level Playing Field.

We had hoped to hold the meeting at the City Ground, but we have decided to hold it by zoom due to current circumstances.

If you would like to attend the meeting, please email liam@levelplayingfield.org.uk

If you have any access requirements for the meeting, e.g., subtitles, please let us know.

All people who register their interest will be emailed the zoom link the morning of the meeting (January 24th at 1pm).

If you cannot attend, please let us know, and we will add you to a mailing list to keep you updated on progress.

If you have any questions, please email Lindsay lhknott6@gmail.com or Liam at liam@levelplayingfield.org.uk

We look forward to hearing from you. Football should be for everyone, no matter the disability, and we hope you will join us in creating positive changes at the City Ground.
