We are committed to improving and expanding upon sporting opportunities that are available to those with disabilities.
Club and Activity Finder
We’ve made it as easy as possible to locate all sports clubs and activities; our North East Club & Activity Finder has been developed to enable you to search by either chosen sport, or radius from a postcode, or specifically ‘disability sport’. Some clubs have identified whether they can inclusively cater for people with disabilities, although you’d need to check with each provider.
National Disability Sport Organisations
If you require any additional information regarding disability sport, we’ve compiled a list of all the disability sport organisations that work across the country. Click below for details.
Local Authority offers
Every local authority in England has a statutory duty to produce a Local Offer which outlines the details of all services available to children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities in that area. Each of our five local authority area offers can be accessed by clicking below.
