Inclusive Activities

Inclusive activities are those which can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. These can be specific activities designed to be able to be played by people with disabilities, for example Boccia and there are those activities which have been altered to be more accessible to a wider range of abilities, such as walking sports.

Inclusive and adaptive activities aren’t just the ones that immediately come to mind, such a wheelchair sports, but also inclusive sports such as Boccia and Indoor Kurling. Inclusive sports are also great for people who’s physical ability has declined due to age, giving them a chance to still be active and take part in sport!

Participation in sports and physical activities not only provides mental and physical health benefits, but it also increases self confidence and defies stereotypes about people with disabilities and disabilities in general. If you want to get involved in inclusive or adaptive sport, you can find some links below with some more information, or alternatively, check out our directory for local opportunities using the link below.
