There are over 11 million people in the UK with a limiting long term illness, impairment or disability. People with disabilities have a shorter life expectancy than those without – they are 58 times more likely to die before the age of 50 than the rest of the population. Sports provisions are focussed on children and young people – with few opportunities for those aged 25 and over.
Inclusive Active is run in conjunction with Try Active to give adults with disabilities the chance to play sport and have fun. The programme has been specially designed by our inclusion coaches for those with physical or learning disabilities. It uses rugby and other sports to develop fundamental movements such as agility, balance and co-ordination, as well as giving participants a safe, fun environment to get healthy. Each session ends with music– so if sport’s not your bag, we’ll still get you moving!
