The Diff-Ability sport Information day is a free event, aimed at promoting adaptive sporting activities available across Cumbria & the borders, that are accessible to people with Disabilities, Learning Disabilities and/or Autism.   People with disabilities are less likely to be active, “Disabled people remain significantly less likely to participate in cultural, leisure and sporting activities than non-disabled people.” (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/disability-facts-and-figures/disability-facts-and-figures)

“Disabled people are twice as likely to be physically inactive (43 per cent) than non-disabled people (21 per cent).” (http://www.activityalliance.org.uk/how-we-help/fact-and-statistics Sport England, Active Lives 1 2015-16).  We hope that by putting on an event like this, people will not only be a little more informed about what is available to them but inspired by some of the activities and talks available on the day.

After all, getting involved in sporting activities is about much more than physical fitness, new friendships can be formed, mental health can be improved & you can feel much better about yourself on a whole!

11am.  Heathlands, Curling/Botcher
