Disabled Sport in Bedfordshire
We work with local Bedfordshire partners to provide advice and guidance on how to provide sport and fitness activities for people with disabilities and additional needs.
We aim to develop a network of multi sports clubs to help people keep fit and improve whole family well-being. Please see below to find out more about local activities in your area, or contact us.
Our ethos is that there are:
- No Limits to an individual's capacity to be involved in sport!
- No Limits to an individual's aspiration to succeed and keep fit!
- No Limits to regular sports participation!
