Sports for people with disabilities
Developing sport and physical activities for people with disabilities
Kingston Community Sport and Physical Activity Network (CSPAN)
Kingston CSPAN Disability sub group 'Active4All' is an alliance of partners with an interest in sport and physical activity to increase participation and widen access for people with disabilities in the borough.
Kingston CSPAN's vision is to:
- enable and increase the number of young people and adults with disabilities participating in sport and physical activity
- develop opportunities for participants with disabilities to gain coaching qualifications and volunteering opportunities
- identify where activity is needed
- work with local sports clubs to provide exit routes for participants
If you are a local organisation that provides sports and physical activity opportunities for people with disabilities, and you are interested in becoming involved in the group please contact Active Kingston.
Active4All (a sub-group of the CSPAN) meets regularly to ensure that disabled children and young people in the borough have the opportunity to enjoy sport and leisure activities. The group has created an easy-read directory of the specialist activities running in the borough, so that children, young people and their families and carers can see what is available.
Details in the directory are checked every school term, but as activities can change quite regularly, parents and carers are advised to contact the organisers of any activities directly that they are interested in.
