Manchester United Foundation is pleased to still able to support its partners throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
One of the key partners is MUDSA and Foundation staff are hosting a weekly exercise session for members of the Disabled Supporters’ Association. The sessions, which began on 6th May, run every Wednesday at 9.30am and lasts for 30-45 minutes.
Nathanial Yates, junior MUDSA ambassador, said: “I think it’s brilliant; Manchester United Foundation are connecting people together during this time.”
Alex Wilson, disability and inclusion manager for Manchester United Foundation, said: “It’s great to still be able to connect with supporters, and in particular disabled fans who are all across the country. We hope the weekly session can provide a bit of fun and purpose for people, whilst also keeping everyone both physically and mentally healthy.”
The sessions are open to all MUDSA members and their family living in the same household. Max and his dad Brian enjoyed taking part together. Max said: “I enjoyed it and I think it’s a great idea because it’s motivating and helps everyone connect with each other.”

The support of MUDSA through the exercise classes follows on from other responses from the Foundation during Covid-19, such as providing activity packs to primary school children, supporting the NHS with meal donations, delivery of goods to food banks and donating £300,000 to partner high schools, colleges and special schools.
