ould you like to try a new sport or physical activity?
Would you like some help to access sport or physical activity?
Into Sport is a partnership between Inclusion London, Interactive and Richmond AID. The projects aims to break down barriers disabled people face in accessing sport. Richmond AID will work with partnering organisations to support disabled people to become active. This project can help people to include sport and physical activity in their lifestyles, which will result in sustained increase in active Disabled Londoners.
How the service works
If you are a disabled person and would like to try a sport or physical activity but need some help to find something you are interested in or something that is accessible to you, then we can help.
We can help you search for activities you are interested and support you to try a few to see what suit! Or we may be able to find a buddy to attend sessions with you, assist with travel and get involved to resolve any access issues.
We are also working closely with local sports clubs, sport centres and other organisations, so we have a broad list of accessible sports/activities for our service users.
This service is for all disabled people including people with learning disabilities, physical and sensory disability and mental health issues.
