The Alan Shearer Foundation launched on the 31 May 2012, with the aim of supporting disability in the North East.

For many disabled children and adults the facilities are there but not for them many supposedly inclusive environments provide access but fall short on participation or are just too expensive for the whole family to join in. Providing young disabled people with ordinary leisure experiences should not be a luxury, it should be a given.

“We’re delighted to welcome Ant and Dec on board as Patrons. They are ideal role models for our young people and I’m very grateful for them being able to find time out of their busy schedule to pop along and to meet some of our guests.”

“When Alan asked us to be patrons of it we jumped at the chance because it is such a brilliant cause.” – Anthony McPartlin

“Alan’s Foundation will make a real difference to disabled people’s lives in our region and we wish Alan every success with his new venture.” – Declan Donnelly
