Disability Sport

Active Dorset County Sports and Physical Activity Partnership is committed to working towards increasing inclusion and developing sustainable and accessible sport and active recreation for disabled people in Dorset.

Active Dorset's aim is to coordinate the development of disability sport across the county, to achieve greater sporting equality by working with a range of partners including National Governing Bodies of sport, voluntary organisations, schools, local authorities and facility providers.
