Welcome to Rossendale Rays Special Needs Sports Club. 

We are a registered charity (no 1118428) founded in 2005 by a committee of like-minded parents and carers of SEND families. We are fully inclusive of all ages and any special need and/or disability. Our focus is on family sports, fun and support by providing regular sporting activities and social events.


We encourage families to attend with siblings, grandparents, relatives, cousins, school friends and peers. This nurtures a relaxed, supportive, inclusive environment. Many siblings and relatives progress to volunteer and work at our club.
