Unite For Access

As part of our continued commitment to equality, inclusion, and diversity, we are delighted to announce our intention to support the creation of the official Peterborough United Football Club Disabled Supporters Association (DSA). 

Announcing this, in conjunction with Level Playing Field's 'Unite for Access' campaign the Club is looking to engage with any and all disabled fans, whether they have a visible or non-visible disability, and also their personal assistants (PAs). The initial focus will be on ways we can improve the experience of any disabled people attending a matchday/event at the Weston Homes Stadium.
This is a joint initiative between the Club and the Peterborough United Foundation. Supporting the creation of the association from the Club will be Operations Manager Leighton Mitchell, who is also the Disabled Liaison Officer and from the Foundation EDI Lead, Jenna Lusk.

Leighton commented ‘We are pleased to launch this association, and I want to encourage fans with visible and non-visible of disabilities to get involved. This is a fantastic opportunity for disabled fans to help the club better understand the barriers that some disabled supporters face, particularly around matchday; we can hopefully improve the experience for all."

Jenna added "Embracing diversity and inclusion isn't just a choice; it's our commitment. We stand dedicated to supporting EDI initiatives and empowering disabled supporters through our partnership with Peterborough United Football Club. Together, we strive to create a community where everyone is valued, respected, and included, both on and off the pitch."

If you would like to be part of this process, please email us using the following email DSA@theposh.com to register an interest; the closing date is the end of March.

After the closing date, we will invite fans in for an initial consultation meeting to discuss the next steps.
