Disability Sport

Living Sport works with many different organisations to support sport opportunities for people with disabilities and special needs. We link people with disabilities, disabled people organisations and local charities into the sports networks, so that everybody, regardless of disability or additional needs, can access sport or physical activity that suits them and their aspirations in sport.

One of our main networks is the Ability PLUS Group, the County Disability Sports Forum for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Anyone interested in disability sport can join the network,  please click on the links to the right of this page.

Looking to get more active? There are lots of  activities which you can join locally. Information about opportunities in each Local Authority and local clubs can be found on the right hand side. Otherwise please contact rebecca.gilbertson@livingsport.co.uk who can give you more information and sign post you appropriately. You might also be interested to find out about ‘Stepping Stone’ where small bursaries can be given to help a disabled person get active. Find out more here

Club or a disability sports coach? We can offer lots of advice.   If you would like more information or are interested in a Disability audit of your club to see how accessible you are talk to Rebecca Gilbertson.

Keep Informed – Living Sport produce a monthly Disability Sport Newsletter which covers local stories and promotes opportunities available from partners. It is open to anyone to subscribe, just email Rebecca rebecca.gilbertson@livingsport.co.uk with your name & email address. 

We also work closely with National Disability Sport Organisations to enable people with specific impairments to access sport with their own impairment group. More information on the 8 National Disability Sport Organisations or NDSO’s and the work we do with them can be found on the right of this page.
