Disability Sport

Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS) is 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.

There are a variety of school programmes in place to ensure that all young people are being included within curriculum PE and are accessing competitive opportunities such as the School Games.

Within community sport, there are a number of opportunities to access including Multi-Sport Clubs which allow young people the opportunity to try a range of different sports.

To ensure clubs and coaches are fully supported in being inclusive we provide a wide range of Workforce Education courses and awareness raising workshops. This programme enables those delivering and working within clubs the opportunity to gain a wider understanding of disability and to improve their skills and confidence to provide the most appropriate environment to welcome all to their sessions.

If you are looking for more information and opportunities to get involved in disability sport you can contact Kate Scott 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.
