Activities for people with disabilities

Are there any specific activities for people with disabilities?

Please use our events calendar to locate specific activities for people with disabilities. You will need to select the sport and play development brochure and search by area, by activity or by month.

We provide a wide range of activities targeted at disabled people, these include:

  • Aspire clubs for young people based in leisure centres;
  • a holiday programme for young people with disabilities;
  • sessions for adults based in the community, delivered by our community sports coaches, for example boccia sessions at day centres.

We also support other organisations to provide sports sessions for people with disabilities such as East Riding of Yorkshire Disabled Swimming Association (ERYDSA) and special schools.

The East Riding Disability Sports Directory has been compiled to help put you in touch with both inclusive and disability specific clubs based within the East Riding of Yorkshire. It provides information on the clubs contact details, session details and further information on facility access provision. Sports clubs are vital provisions within the community and it is hoped that this directory will be a useful resource.
