Sports & Societies

Join a Club or Society and become a part of #TeamWorc

 

Everyone should have an equal opportunity to access physical activity and social activities. #TeamWorc wants to remove the stigma from all disabilities, challenge perceptions and encourage the student population to take a positive attitude towards understanding the nature of disability.
