    Major area of interest is sport and disabled people where I have nearly 25 years of experience. My work in this area has developed links with a range of local (e.g. School Sports Partnerships & local authorities), Regional (e.g. Interactive) and National agencies (e.g. Youth Sport Trust, English Federation of Disability Sport).
    Specific area of current work is around the identification of talented disabled young sportspeople, particularly those in mainstream schools, with an eye to developing performers for the 2012 Paralympic Games and beyond.
