Activity Alliance is the leading voice for disabled people in sport and activity. We were established in 1998 as a national charity, previously known as the English Federation of Disability Sport. 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.
We exist to close the fairness gap - that is reducing the gap between disabled and non-disabled people’s inactivity levels. But we cannot do this alone so are building a powerful movement that drives change. The movement includes our staff, board, and members to create a fairer society for everyone. A place where everyone can be active how and where they want to.
Our vision: Fairness for disabled people in sport and activity
Our purpose: Leading organisational improvement and changing attitudes to unlock the value of sport and activity for disabled people
We exist to close the gap between disabled people’s level of inactivity and that of non-disabled people. We will make that change within a generation by:
- Embedding inclusive practice into organisations
- Changing attitudes towards disabled people in sport and activity
We are currently shaping our 2021 - 2024 Strategy, Achieving Fairness. This looks to a future where disabled people are just as likely as non-disabled people to be active.
