September 2018 marked 20 years since we became a national charity and we are proud of our success so far. We work with so many amazing people and are at the centre of influential world-renowned programmes for disabled people.

Our vision: Disabled people are active for life

Our purpose: Making active lives possible by enabling organisations to support individual disabled people to be active and stay active for life.

We are currently shaping our 2020 - 2025 Strategy, Achieving Fairness. This looks to a future where disabled people are just as likely as non-disabled people to be active.
