Talkback is a session at Wycombe Badminton Centre for adults with learning disability and autism; more information can be found on their website:
Talkback has developed a strong partnership which joined their knowledge in learning disability and Wycombe Badminton's open mind and keen to learn approach. They work hard to break down those barriers for people accessing sport.
So, why do Talkback value Wycombe Badminton's approach so much and why that has helped to break down those barriers?
Its really fabulous work and there is much still to do to build on...
