Everyone, no matter what their ability, should have access to sport, recreation and physical activity. Throughout Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland there are numerous opportunities for people with disabilities to access community sport clubs and physical activity sessions.

Clubs & Sessions

To search for an Inclusive/Disability Club, use our Get Active Search Engine or contact Ellesmere College at the details below.

If you are running any disability/inclusive sessions that are not yet on the Get Active Search Engine, you can add your club and sessions to ensure you are promoting your inclusive opportunities.

Ellesmere College and Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport support Local Sport Alliances (LSAs) to develop opportunities across a number of different areas for disabled people in each district. This may include areas such as club development, workforce training and work with facilities.

Inclusive/Disability Football

Leicestershire & Rutland Inclusive Football Partnership are committed to enabling all players to play football and providing opportunities for people who want to become involved in the many different areas of football. They strive to ensure all those involved reach their potential as a player, coach, referee, administrator or volunteer.

EFDS Inclusion Club Hub

EFDS has developed a free online toolkit to support clubs to include more disabled people in sport. Register on the site to gain more resources, signposting and advice. It can be used in a variety of ways within your club.

You can use it to audit your club to see how inclusive you are or as a resource to support your club's development. Perhaps use it to develop a club action plan, support your Clubmark process, or your general planning. As part of your results, you will have access to case studies and good practice examples.


Ellesmere College Community has developed an offer to work with facilities to ensure they are accessible and inclusive to the whole community.

The Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) is a programme which offers disabled people more choice and opportunities to enjoy the benefits of physical activity - we are committed to supporting the fitness industry to achieve this.

The IFI operate an accreditation scheme; IFI Mark which recognises the achievements and commitment of leisure facilities who enable disabled people to become physically active. The accreditation provides an inclusive platform for disabled and non-disabled people to be active together. For more information contact Ellesmere College on the details below.
