This could be a possible source of advice, in framing a suitable set of rules for the future. Another source of advice and training is the county sports partnerships. They regularly run courses relevant to disabled sport and I would recommend anyone who is may be involved in making decisions on disabled inclusion attend one. They are usually held in the evening, are of 2-3 hours duration and cost iro 25.00. These courses are not "PC" they are practical and thought provoking.

Cheers Rutty, that does seem like very sound advice
