Support for clubs providing inclusive physical activities

Funding, support and advice are available to local sport clubs that cater for people with additional needs, or wish to do so.

Funding

A bursary of up to £200 is available to help local clubs and organisations deliver disability specific or inclusive physical activities.

The bursary can be used to support or fully fund making current activities inclusive. This might include providing additional coaching, publicity, equipment, or access for disabled participants. It could also be used to develop new sessions, including paying for hall hire, coaching, specialist equipment, or publicity.

Contact us to ask for an application form.

Equality and safeguarding

For all coaching and club activities it is important to make sure that you understand safeguarding policies and procedures, and are aware of the Equality Act 2010.

Our county sport partnership Living Sport provides inclusive advice and guidance, including how to get started and what you can do to make your club or activity more inclusive.

County and national sport organisations

TheAbility Plus Groupis the disability sports forum for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. It's a network of professionals from different organisations that promotes sport and active recreation for people with disabilities or additional needs.

The group meets every quarter to discuss specific themes, and has objectives that they always work towards.

Activity Alliance, formerly known as the English Federation of Disability Sport, works to make active lives possible with a vision that disabled people are active for life. It supports organisations to help include disabled people more effectively.

Partnership work

We work very closely with Living Sport, our county sport partner, to help support national sport organisations to deliver inclusive activities locally.

These organisations include British Blind Sport, UK Deaf Sport, CP Sport, Mencap, WheelPower, Dwarf Sport Association UK, and Limbpower.

Living Sport provides more information about these national disability sports organisations.
