Disabled Access For Rugby Park
Disabled access should be organised in advance of match day via the Kilmarnock Football Club Disabled Supporters Association (KFCDSA).
Peter Orr is the Disabled Supporters Liaison Officer for the club and can be contacted on 07759616945.
Kilmarnock Football Club is committed to taking reasonable and practical steps to address the needs of disabled people in obtaining safe and secure access to our premises and enjoying the experience and services we offer.
If a disabled person tells us about particular needs or requirements, we will do everything we reasonably can to assist.
The Club operates and will continue to operate a concessionary ticketing policy for disabled supporters and will ensure that the scheme does not discriminate between disabled people with differing impairments.
The Club maintains an excellent rapport and regular contact with the KFCDSA who work with the Club to bring to their attention relevant matters on a regular basis.
The KFCDSA has a good measure of autonomy and useful links with Disabled Supporters Sections of other Football Clubs.
Complaints will be dealt with in an honest and fair manner. Complaints should be made to the KFCDSA in the first instance.
THE HISTORY OF THE KFCDSA TO THE PRESENT DAY
by Chairman - Peter Orr
Monthly KFCDSA Commitee MeetingsEvery month we hold a meeting of committee members in the Park Hotel to discuss any businees involving KFCDSA and assist in trying to make sure that all our disabled members can attend games without any difficulties and if they need any help we strive to alleviate any problems that occur swiftly.
KFCDSA Commercial ActivityWe conduct several commercial activities that are aimed at improving our members experiences whilst also doing our bit to help support the football club financially. We hold a bottle stall at the Killie Festival to raise funds for the use of our members. i.e Christmas Lunch in the Park suite. We aid and assist members in whatever activity they choose to take part in, either learning or sports, by donating monies to them so they can participate.
