Disability Sport

Information and support to help disabled people get active & involved.

Northamptonshire Sport believes everyone, no matter what their ability, should have access to sport, recreation and physical activity.

We are part of the Northamptonshire Federation of Disability Sport (NFDS) which aims to increase the number of disabled people involved in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity within Northamptonshire. In order to achieve this, NFDS has five key goals:

  • To act as a collective voice for disability sport both in Northamptonshire and throughout the East Midlands
  • To develop partnerships between local voluntary, statutory and private agencies to break down barriers faced by disabled people in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity
  • To make sure disabled people have access to sporting opportunities at a level of their choosing and ability, in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity
  • To empower disabled people to make a positive contribution in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity
  • To ensure that each disabled person is treated fairly, without discrimination, regardless of his or her gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or economic background

My role is to support the development and delivery of the Northamptonshire Physical Activity Framework. I work with partners in Daventry, East Northamptonshire and Northampton to get people living in those areas more active with a real emphasis on the inactive groups identified within our hotspot areas.
