If you have a disability and are looking to get involved in sport but don't know where your nearest club is, you can locate it by using our North East Club Finder (please select 'disability' under the 'sports/events' drop down, prior to clicking 'search’ to find disability focused clubs). Additionally, some of the other clubs listed under the different sports may also be able to cater for people with disabilities, although you would need to check with each provider.
Further information about disability sport is available by visiting the English Federation of Disability Sport website. In addition, the Child Protection in Sport Unit has produced information for safeguarding deaf and disabled children in sport, please click on this link to view.
We also co-ordinate and chair the Tyne & Wear Disability Sport Forum, which was established in 2007. The terms of reference for the group can be downloaded here.
For further information about the forum please contact David Marrin on 0191 497 2324 or via email,firstname.lastname@example.org.
