Disability and Inclusive Sport & Activity
At Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport we are committed to equality in sport and getting more disabled people involved in sport and physical activity. We work with a variety of partners to ensure equality is at the heart of all sport and physical provision across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.
When it comes to exercise, disabled people have pretty much the same options – everything from simply getting out a bit more to playing team sports.
There are local school programmes in place to ensure that young people with a disability are included within curriculum PE and are accessing additional opportunities such as the School Games and Daily Boost.
Within your community, there are opportunities to access including local clubs and groups to try a range of different sports and activities.
If you are looking for more information and opportunities to get involved in disability sport and activity you can us here at Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (contact details below) or contact your local Sport & Physical Activity Team to find out more about your local opportunities.
