Diff-Ability sport information day to be held on August 27th in Carlisle
Cumbria parent Carer Forum have arranged a Diff-Ability sport information day which is being held at Carlisle Youth Zone on August 27th, between 11am and 4pm.
There will be lots of free taster activities to take part in, including climbing walls, Mass participation dance class, football, rebound and more!!
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/
“Disabled people are twice as likely to be physically inactive (43 per cent) than non-disabled people (21 per cent).” (http://www.activityalliance.
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!
Throughout the day there will also be:
FREE Entry, FREE taster sessions, please bring a packed lunch if staying all day.
