Living Sport works with many different organisations to support sport opportunities for people with disabilities. 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. Whether it be to get or remain active in some way to becoming Paralympic champion there is a sport out there for all.
One of our main networks is the Ability PLUS Group, the County Disability Sports Forum for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The Ability PLUS Group is a network that promotes sport and active recreation for people with disabilities or additional needs. Anyone interested in disability sport can join the network, to find out more about Ability PLUS please click on the links to the right of this page.
There are lots of opportunities to get active in the community and we try to capture this information to promote opportunities locally. Information about opportunities in each Local Authority and local clubs can be found on the right hand side. If you can’t find what you are looking for please contact Rebecca Gilbertson firstname.lastname@example.org who can give you more information and sign post you appropriately. You might also be interested to look under projects and ‘Stepping Stone’ where small bursaries can be given to help a disabled person get active.
There is also lots of advice available to clubs and coaches out there to support people with a disability to access your sports clubs and we have tried to capture some of this information in one place for you. 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.
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 to just email Rebecca email@example.com all we need to know is your name and 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.
