Hays Recruitment partners with Disability Sport NI on ‘Wheely’ inclusive team-building activity

A team from leading recruitment specialist Hays Recruitment organised a wheelchair basketball session supported by Disability Sport NI (DSNI) at Queens Physical Education Centre (PEC).

The two-hour session allowed staff to learn how to play wheelchair basketball and was an initiative which aimed to support the mental health and wellbeing of staff, as well as give them an insight into sport and recreation enjoyed by disabled people.

Disability Sport NI is Northern Ireland’s main disability sports charity which works to improve the health and wellbeing of disabled people through sport and active recreation.

Hays Senior Consultant and organiser for the wheelchair basketball, Matthew McArthur, said: “This activity was the most enjoyable team building experience, an activity for everyone!

“I want to thank Danny, Caitlin and Mark at DSNI for setting this up and taking the session. I highly recommend wheelchair basketball as a fully inclusive team building activity. A sport for everyone!”.
